The Crucible

Description 

A fun sport route up steep but nicely featured rock. Crux comes at bulge between fourth and fifth bolts. Some avoid the crux by traversing left around bulge and regaining route above the bulge. That leaves a scary fall potential on lead but works well on TR.


Location 

Left-most route on Roadside Attraction Rock (to the right of Cattle Call Wall) just on the other side of the fence away from highway. Listed as route #9 on route topo photo for Las Conchas Cattle Call Wall Area.


Protection 

6 (or 7) bolts to two-bolt anchor.

Rope drag on this one is pretty high. Fun climb, though.

And to add to George's comment, we left the two bolt/hangers that did serve as the anchor in situ. I didn't have a small enough socket to remove the five-piece bolts. The hangers are a bit loose anyhow so we opted to install new bolts to go with the new Fixe sport anchors. I'll go back to remove the old hangers at some point but if someone else wants 'em, go for it!

The Orange hanger on the top right spins; Can't get it out or in. Tightened the others today.
