Description

Start just to the right of a medium juniper and climb slightly right to gain a small ledge. Reach up and left to clip your first bolt. Find the holds that will put you over the bulge. After a few easy moves, climb the smooth, thin face to the anchors. Crux near the middle and the top. Guides both give this route a 5.10b rating, thought it was a little more difficult than that. Crux at the top.

Location

At the top of the trailhead, you will see a small alcove between a large rock and the cliff, with a tree behind. The route starts in here, gains a ledge, and heads up towards lichen covered rock to the anchors.

Protection

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

I agree with Anthony that this feels a bit harder than 5.10b, especially compared to the other 5.10s at the CCC. Very nice though. Sep 24, 2006

The rule to know about Bradshaw routes is 10a is nice and 10b/c is hard. Beware the 10c. Well bolted as are all Bradshaw routes. Rick put a lot of time and money in bolting these fine climbs. This route was hard for me. A lot of hanging. Oct 8, 2006

FA was by Rick Bradshaw, in 2000. I might have been helping out that day too, but I can't remember. I did help Rick put up about 10 of the Cockcomb routes.

Great route. Really well bolted, on quality rock. Thanks to the bolters for treating us all to quality climbing, and splurging on excellent anchors! Sep 13, 2009
