Paul Pomeroy making the second ascent. 1988.


Just right of Bucket Slave, find a wall with graffiti that says "pink cows fly at night" This route ascends the dihedral with interesting sometimes reachy moves.


3 bolts and anchors

Brooke pulling onto the slab. Is this offroute? I still felt it was solid 5.10b with these moves.

I think the guidebooks call this 10c/d. I'm no expert on the naunces of 5.10, but as a bone-throwing gesture to my 5.10 loving brethren (and sistren...sp?) I have to object, and say that I think this one is harder than 10b, especially if you are in any way vertically-challenged. It's a great trad simulator too!

Stepping right onto the slab after the second bolt as the new guidebook suggests keeps this climb mild. Heading straight up to the third bolt and on to the anchor (as is suggested by the bolts and anchors themselves), I suspect, is yet harder than 5.10d. Next time.

Rick Shull and myself did the FA of this in 1988 while on a roadtrip; we named it Lovesnake after a friend's band at the time. I'm sure the climb could be extended albeit at a harder grade - anyone interested have at it!

Those anchors are in the wrong spot.

The anchors are fine where they are.
