Thanks Ben.

Appreciate the info. My buddy tried it a while back and he's a low 10 climber, but we thought it just looked cool. He'll be psyched to hear about this.

And thanks for all the work you've been putting in. Looking forward to going back there to try some of the new stuff.

Cheers,

Great photo Spider! That's an angle most visitors to Texas Canyon don't ever see. Dec 8, 2011

JWong,
The route you have referred to is, as JJ Brunner indicated, a 5.11a. The crux lies just above the climber in the photo. A popular sequence goes left at this point, and back to a 5th bolt, above the bulge and is 5.10b. Once past the bulge there are 4 more bolts leading to a couple choices for bolted anchors, not equipped for lowering. Hope that beta helps you.

ps. Egg-zillaration (5.11a) - 5 bolts, stems up the chimney/gulley on the RIGHT skyline of The Egg, with Walking on Eggshells (rumored to have been bolted by Graham Doe) following the sun/shadow line up the NE side. Jul 13, 2011
