Description

A short, easy sport route to chains. Makes for a good beginner sport lead although the spacing between the last two bolts is spicey (but the climbing is easy.)
Many options for the start exist but starting right of bolt line and then moving up and left is easiest.

Location

Listed as route #6 on route topo photo for Las Conchas Cattle Call Wall.

Protection

Three bolts to chains.

Great introductory climb and/or beginner lead. Fun for kids too! Jun 14, 2007
Good first sport lead, and (as I discovered today) it can be led on gear. A #2 takes care of the bottom, and a couple of creative small nut placements can be had as well. Not really worth the hassle of hauling out the rack, though. Sep 10, 2008

Don't tell Sonnie Trotter or those bolts might get chopped! :) Sep 11, 2008

The real Pie In Your Eye ascends the diagonal leftward crack system to the right of this bolted route. It is a trad route and use to have two bolted anchors at the very top of the wall. I think they were chopped at some point. Sep 3, 2009

Further complicating things, Rock Climbing: New Mexico lists a climb called 'Pie in Your Eye' as being in the location that Jason's photo and 'Jemez Rock' put 'Bovine Inspiration', and rates it 5.9. That book calls this line 'Unknown 4' and rates it 5.6. Sep 23, 2009
This is a fun little climb. Great for young kids who are just beginning to climb, like you all said. I would definitively bring the kids I watch up here and put them on this one first. I soloed this, I'm not a great climber but it is easy enough to solo. Jun 30, 2010
