Description Suggest change

Climb up the slab with moves that look harder than they are. Pass one short steep section to the first two bolt anchor. If you want, continue up the slab to a good stance. Then one final mantle to the left brings you to a large ledge with a second two bolt anchor.

Location Suggest change

This route is one of several nice routes in the alcove area of the Pool Wall in Ouray, a friendly place to climb with closely spaced bolts. Park in the upper lot for the pool in town. Cross the road and head up the obvious wash. You pass an old no trespassing sign, access is currently allowed, continue up the wash and you will be in the alcove

Test Drive is the fifth route from the left in the alcove, two routes right of Groove Tube. It starts up a slab to a two bolt anchor, and an extension continues up to a large ledge.

Protection Suggest change

Bolts: 4 to the first anchor, 3 more to a second anchor.
