Unknown climber "Josh" on Rooster Cogbur...


3 boulder problems with the one going to the anchors being the crux. Great movement and well bolted.


Prow left of Rodeo Drive.

This route is really nice. Kudos to Cody Harris on putting this up. Great movement in a beautiful position up this arete. One of my favorite climbs at Wild Iris.

What a fantastic route! Great movement with three solid rests every fifteen or so feet. WARNING BETA: at the final bolt, go left to the pocket and right to the crimp. I botched that sequence and fell on the flash attempt.

Great route!! If Diamonds and Rain is .11d... then Rooster Cogburn might be more in the .11c realm. Either that or I was feeling strong when I onsighted Rooster.

I also found this one to be very fun, but I agree that .12a is a big stretch.
