Me fighting through the pump to the anchors.

Description 

Sweet movement. Pretty and continuous. Start with a few easier pulls heading up and right into the bulging start. Don't think its over too soon. Keep on it!

Location 

Wind and Rattlesnakes is the first line to the right of the vertical face to BIG roof (Rode Hard 12c and others). It climbs easily up into a corner before heading right across the bulging face.

Protection 

5 or 6 bolts to anchors.

I loved this route. It's surprisingly pumpy pulling through those final pockets on the final headwall!

You guys are easy with the stars. I'm pushing to give it 3. It's a good route though. 65 feet !? I'll bet it's 50 max.

Great Route! Appears to be recently rebolted with glue-ins. Anyone know what type of bolt the second glue-in is? Really thin in comparison to the others. I'm not saying anything is wrong with that bolt; I'm just interested in what it is. Saw a similar one on another route or two at Wild Iris (first bolt of Limestone Cowboy).

The really thin glue-in bolt that you are asking about is titanium. Sam Lightner has been rebolting routes in Lander, and he has been using glue-ins. Some of the first routes he rebolted, he used titanium bolts left over from his days in Thailand.
