Description

On the far right side of the rock and just off the descent trail is a steep west facing gold and brown wall. Corn on the Cob start on the right side of this wall. Climb up to the first bolt, make a move up to a small overhang. Clip a bolt and crank over the roof. Continue straight up the face past three more bolts to the anchor. Bring small stoppers for a flake just past the fourth bolt. Good climbing on excellent rock.

The move over the overhang was 12- until a very loose block came off leaving a large incut bucket.

Protection

Five clips plus some small stoppers will get you to the anchor.

The move turning the overhang at the second bolt is the crux. I did a dyno to the good incut edge above the bolt, and I'm 6'1". Shorter climbers may find this move more like 11a or 11b.

Above, steep but moderate (8 to 9) climbing leads to the anchor. Nov 8, 2005

Nice addition to Cob. I'm 5'10" and no dyno required. Looking at the photo, I'm sure I used a different sequence. I appreciated that where good gear was available, no bolts were placed. May 16, 2006
