Description

Start at the left edge of the formation and crank up past the first bolt (the inital crux). This route is still fairly new and has some dirty sections down low. A bit of traffic will fix that. Continue up the steep face on thin edges and a few side pulls. Once past the 5th bolt, a thin crack appears. Protect the crack (#6 nut works fine) and continue upward toward a larger vertical crack. The remaining upper section is all protected with gear (again, pro up to 1.5"). Lower off Mussey hooks.

Location

Once in the flat mini-grass valley, head to a large boulder and tunnel underneath it. Once you get to the other side, there will be a steep wall on the left side. 'Cattle Drive' starts on the left edge of the formation and 20 feet left of Really Really Ridiculously Good Looking.

6 bolts, gear to 1.5". Mussey hooks for anchors.

Protection

- Draws
- Pro to 1.5" (#6 nut after the 5th bolt)

Sad that wall was broken up with a route name unrelated to Zoolander. But then again, the FA gets to choose whatever comes to mind. ;) Apr 6, 2016

Not in the 2008 Guide. This climb is easily mistaken for Really Really- Hence the crappy rock comments. This is a new pitch and climbs the left side of the "Upper" Zoo section. Its actually quite fun, but confusing if you think you are on Really Really ( Which starts dead center of the upper wall)

Also- Unless I am mistaken, the term " Cattle Drive" cannot be found in the epic film Zoolander. Apr 27, 2015
