Description

One of the best routes at El Rito. Very pumpy and sustained after the initial slab. Cruise up the slabby lower section to a no-hands stance below the steep wall above. Make powerful moves up the faint corner and keep pulling on big holds to the anchor.

Location

Second route from the left on the Big Pine Wall. Starts a few feet to the right of the Big Pine. There's a newer route (May 2014) just left of Cobble Wobble. Cobble Wobble is the route with loads of chalk up a small right-facing corner above.

Protection

7 bolts to anchors

Great route! I think there were 7 bolts to anchors instead of 6. May 25, 2017

Minor avalanche of bowling ball to softball size rockfall today from mid section of Cobble Wobble, two in our party sustained injury - wear your helmets out there folks!! Sep 2, 2016
Dave, you will be glad to know the cobble is still up there scarring the shit out of climbers. Why do you think it's named cobble wobble? Apr 30, 2012

I did the same thing as Dave, though it wasn't making noise. If you dead hang it the rock won't give, and it is by far the best clipping hold. Aug 1, 2010

Wait a minute....

So the hold was moving and making noise and you still decided to clip the chains from it? Hmmmmm..... May 26, 2010
The cobble up top to the left of the anchors is loose(!). This is the hold I use for clipping, and from the amount of chalk on it, seems like everybody else does, too. I pulled hard on it and couldn't get it to pry loose, but if you shake it, it definitely rattles. I drew an "X" on it with chalk, but this will wash off in the next rain/snow storm. Beware!

One of my favorites at El Rito. Great moves, long, and sustained with one good rest in the middle. Watch out for some loose rock to the left of the anchors. Jul 1, 2007
