Description

A fun sport route up steep but nicely featured rock. Crux comes at bulge between fourth and fifth bolts. Some avoid the crux by traversing left around bulge and regaining route above the bulge. That leaves a scary fall potential on lead but works well on TR.

Location

Left-most route on Roadside Attraction Rock (to the right of Cattle Call Wall) just on the other side of the fence away from highway. Listed as route #9 on route topo photo for Las Conchas Cattle Call Wall Area.

Protection

7 bolts to two-bolt anchor.

Rope drag on this one is pretty high. Fun climb, though. Sep 25, 2007

And to add to George's comment, we left the two bolt/hangers that did serve as the anchor in situ. I didn't have a small enough socket to remove the five-piece bolts. The hangers are a bit loose anyhow so we opted to install new bolts to go with the new Fixe sport anchors. I'll go back to remove the old hangers at some point but if someone else wants 'em, go for it! Jun 24, 2008

Hi - Just did this with my boys yesterday . Very nice. But we all counted 7 bolts?? Oct 22, 2012

The first bolt is kinda weird as you are standing above it as you clip. Otherwise all the other bolts are placed really well, big feet or a huge ledge to stand on as you clip. The crux through the climb is around blot 5 or 6, mostly b/c a couple of the hands are not the jugs found through the rest of the climb, but the feet are great and feel like climbing stairs. Fun route for an intermediate climber to lead. Jun 3, 2015

I love this route. It is a little longer than the majority of the climbs in that area and the moves are just fun. At any point if you feel like things are difficult, my advice would be to just look around for a better foot or hand as there are so many pockets it is likely there is a better one out there.

  • *Warning**
The 6th bolt currently needs replacement - it is wiggling in rock! (not just a spinning hanger)This makes the climbing in this section a "no fall zone".

I did not spot this while leading it, but my follower noticed it - said the bolt was loose, and the nut - they hand tightened the nut, but the bolt still wiggled. Aug 1, 2017

My daughter and I climbed this the other day. We found the crux to be off the ground, gaining the first bolt (but she's short). Perhaps it's easier to move in from the right than to climb directly to it. Apr 1, 2018
