Howdy Doody Time!!!!!

State Park; Fee Required. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Bring your full bag of tricks for this one; success will demand a bit of route finding, power, and finesse. The movement and exposed positions are memorable to say the least.

Climb easy rock onto a ledge above the belay. From the ledge, the route climbs up and left on beautiful gold rock, traverses right into a corner, and continues up onto the arete and face above.

Say kids, what time is it?

It's Howdy Doody Time!

It's Howdy Doody Time.

It's time to start the show,
So kids let's go!

Location 

Near the center of the South face, left of Open Space Cowboy, belay near a convenient boulder seat.

Protection 

11 bolts to ring anchors.

CONDITION REPORT 
Solid 11b.
Climbed this route a couple weeks ago. I liked the bolt placement. Maybe I'm a chicken shit, but I liked every last bolt. Great route.

Really good variety. Clipping from a heel hook? Fabulous!

Looks can be deceiving. One of the funnest pitches I've climbed in a while.

Great route. Definitely over bolted.

Fun, if awkward, movement on this route and interesting route-finding. This route would be just as safe with 3 fewer bolts for a more enjoyable climbing experience.

I came back a year later with a small rack. 6 bolts were unnecessary, and most of these were next to perfectly good gear placements. I do not agree with the idea of designating an area a "sport crag" for the convenience of "sport climbers". While Mark Rolofson has established some of my favorite sport climbs, he has also fully bolted many routes that would make for better, challenging trad routes protected by bolts where gear is not available. Learning to adapt to the rock and use the necessary tools to ensure our own safety is an inherent part of climbing. Do you bolt cracks?
