Description

From a distance, you can see a giant "OX" painted on the rock. This route splits the "O". Start with a little overhang on the right side of the boulder sticking out from the left end of the Tradlands. Run straight up the middle of the face above past three more bolts to the anchors.

Protection

Four bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings. The anchor is set back on a ledge, so bring slings for toproping/lowering, and rappel to clean the route.

I don't recommend this route. As previous comments state, it looks like no one climbs straight up the bolt line. I did and thought that you could be looking at a ledge fall on every ledge. North Table is not my favorite place to climb, but it has some decent routes. This so far is my least favorite. Jan 17, 2015

Felt a lot harder than 7 if you go straight up the bolt line, which apparently no one does based on all the chalk. Being Table Mtn, I wasn't sure if stepping into one of the chimneys on either side would put me on an entirely different route. Lots of ledges and dirt, wouldn't recommend this to a new 7 leader.

I thought the moves at each bolt were interesting little boulder problems. It climbs better than it looks. But, I also thought if you fell on the 3rd bolt, the caribiner would break. It is a poorly located bolt. Shad, did you think the 3rd bolt placement was bad? The biner is being bent over an edge. It should have been placed 3 inches higher or lower. Jan 17, 2004

Really ledgy, which is slightly annoying, but cool move at the start. Jan 17, 2004
Oh, I see it; shite, that is a big "OX"! Just a little faded, that's all. Yeah, never mind that last comment, I'm just blind. Little Ox, of course, climbs right through a smaller, little ox, which is quite a bit more obvious. Jan 22, 2002
Just climbed this a couple hours ago. I think the descriptions might be a little mixed up here. Little Ox climbs straight thru the "O" painted on the rock, not this route. Also, the move at the last bolt seemed harder than any move on Little Ox--but then again, the sun had just set, it was butt ass cold, and my partner wanted the hell out of there! Jan 13, 2002
