Description 

This route should get more traffic. It's pretty fun. From the Big Roof, walk back left along the face, avoiding the poison ivy. This is the middle of 3 lines on a big flake. Stay on the flake for full value and fun. Try for the onsight!

BETA WARNING: The crux is about 15 feet up with an awkward side pull with off balance feet while you attempt to pull up high enough to hit the next jugs. Easy terrain awaits you after that. I think it shares anchors with In The Pink, but I could be wrong. It's been a while.

Protection 

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

How it got its name:


"On a final note, the name “Quickdraw moves to Hollywood” has a story like most of the route names I come up with. Back when I climbed at RW a lot and was helping with development I had a good friend – Kelly Gorder. We hung out and climbed a lot together. He put quite a few routes up at RW. New kids, and Kelly’s arête are a couple of them. Anyhow he had a dog named Quickdraw. Like a lot of dogs Quickdraw was a lover. Happy just to know you. Well Kelly and his family and Quickdraw moved to the Sacramento area to train race horses. I named the route in their honor."

By definition, no one reading this description can Onsight this route. Please be careful with the specifics given and if beta is shared to place a BETA Disclaimer warning in advance.

Probably shouldn't even bother trolling Mountain Project unless you are looking for beta...it's kinda the whole point.

How about this:

"Middle climb on a chossy flake, at an exfoliating former quarry."

Better?

I concede that you are right that this site is widely used and understood as a beta source. My suggestion for BETA Warning was out of place and I admit I was wrong.

But to give a slew of beta and then state it would be a great onsight is contradictory.

Just knowing the grade ruins the on-sight.

Yeah you are right Josh. Sorry didn't mean to be a dick. Also when I wrote this it never had chalk on it. Last time I was up there it was practically glowing with chalk so I guess my description needed updating anyway.
