Description

Fun face with great incut holds, and if you're willing to run it out a little bit on a short section of 5.8 hand crack at the top, the only sport climb on the wall. The bolts are very hard to spot at first.

Location

Located on the tall right side of the wall, up the center of the clean face.

Protection

11 bolts, one or two hand size cams, 2 bolt anchor with mussy hooks.

Good route, a couple tricky balance spots in the first four bolts than long enjoyable mellow to the anchor Oct 7, 2016
Kens comments Circa 2012 lead me to believe that he was on Cattle Drive, as we made the same mistake. The 2008 Guide doesn't show C.D.

The crack at the top is really very good. But 8 ft is a bit shy. I would say a solid 15-20 feet from the last bolt to the anchors. Apr 27, 2015

Good route, better quality rock than some of the neighbors with limited loose rock. Thoughtful and plentiful bolt placements courtesy of Greg & Karin. No real crux, hauled up a few pieces for the crack above as suggested but it's bomber hands with features all around plus only 8' or so above the last bolt. Feb 20, 2014

Similar to the route to the right, in grade and quality. Lots of bolts. Maybe one tricky move down low and then just weave your way up the various features to the anchor. Feb 19, 2014

Ken must be smoking something not so good. This route, however, is wonderful--clean rock, nice edges, and pleasently sustained. I've done a lot (most?) 10a's in the Hills, and this is definitely one of the better ones. A single gold Camalot is all you need for the crack at the top. The setting is excellent, and the wall gets good afternoon shade. Go do it!

Kind of loose and chossy. Expect this one to get harder as more and more holds rip off. Jun 6, 2012

Definitely worth the scramble; one of the best routes in the Hills and a good measure for a solid 10a route. The crack at the top is short, lower-angle and can be climbed through to the anchors (or bring a single 2" piece if you want more piece of mind) May 14, 2012
