Description

I had originally put off doing this route because it looks so bad from the ground. However the rock isn't nearly as bad as it looks and the movement is quite fun. The business portion of this route is short with good holds and powerful reaches between them. While it looks a little scary from the ground the clipping holds are all quite positive negating any scariness.

Location

Start to the left of a tree between the routes It's Time to Drink Beer and Tecate Two-Step.

Protection

4 bolts to anchors

The anchors are black cold shuts above and right of the last bolt, hard to see from the ground. Apr 30, 2012

This is a quality route! Fun boulder problem that doesn't really let up until you pull onto the slab. Stick clipping the second bolt may be a good idea on this one. Sep 10, 2011

Thanks, DTP. I took another look at this today, and the route indeed has its own anchors: well-hidden cold shuts. Aug 12, 2011

My memory's a bit hazy but I'm pretty sure that this has its own anchors. They may be over the top after things slab out, and hard to spot until you are almost to the top. Aug 8, 2011

Does this thing have its own anchors? I thought the movement was pretty fun (probably worth 2 stars), but making the 20-foot traverse left to Village Cobbler seemed a bit silly. According to the picture in Rock Climbing New Mexico, the climb should have its own anchors, but I couldn't spot them from the ground or from the fourth bolt. Jul 30, 2011
