This is a good, moderate, face climb with some cool features. Three bolts with a fairly moderate yet long run-out at the top lead you to a two bolt anchor.


Oxbow is the furthest route right on the Dos XX cliff.


Three new bolts. A solid new anchor at the top.

If you're not comfortable leading a run-out section of friction, I wouldn't recommend leading this one. One more bolt five feet past the third would make this a great advanced-beginner lead.

Great fun route!!!! No need for another bolt. After the 3rd bolt, there is another 3 feet of climbing that is definitely a tad thin, but if you fall, it's short. After that, it's a cruise to the anchors. Great route!

Fun, mellow lead. Majority of the runout is easier climbing. The anchor bolts are in a super awkward spot though. Anchoring with standard draws / cordelette is a major drag. Two 240cm slings does the trick.
