This route, like it's neighbor to the right, is a local classic and a highly recommended route for the grade that provides fun climbing on mostly large holds up a vertical wall.

Start down and left from Bye Crackie and just right of Golden Poodle and climb broken rock to a bolt 20' up (optional gear to 2.5" available). From here the wall steepens and well-protected climbing on mostly incut patina plates and edges leads to anchors on a sloping ledge.


This is the second bolted route from the left and is just left of Bye Crackie.


6 bolts, 2 bolt sport anchor

Coyotes is awesome. It is a great warm-up climb as well as a perfect route for those leading at the grade. This one is almost dead vertical but the holds are bomb and the moves very well-protected. A true Holcomb classic. Jun 16, 2007

Excellent route! Great lead climb!! I think when I was on the 3rd bolt, I had a section that I had a bit of a hard time. Once I figured out my sequence, it was AWESOME!! LOVED IT! ~~ROCKY~~ Jul 16, 2011

I literally did the climb at sunset. Other than the fact that the temp dropped quickly due to it being almost east facing so it made the climb a little more difficult with stiff fingers.. but a fun climb and rated perfectly Oct 20, 2013

a must if you are in the area.

Solid holds, great rock, well protected.

Make sure to take in the view once you gain the top. Jul 10, 2015

I'll be the first to admit, while this climb isn't that difficult, I got stuck about 45' up for about ten minutes standing three feet above my last bolt and three feet below my next bolt contemplating the lesser evil of trusting some really small stuff on my left side or some really awkward stuff on my right. Eventually onsighted it still, even after cramping from holding the same thing for so long. The fall would have been clean as this face is nearly perfectly vertical. As with the route to the right, the views from the top are unbelievable. A must see for anyone in the area. Jul 5, 2016
