Description

Fun climbing. There are a couple of sections of rock that look loose or crumbly from the ground, but either the FA or subsequent climbers have done a good job of cleaning the vast majority of it off.

The bolting (and lack thereof where appropriate) on this route is superb.

The climbing is surprisingly good, especially given the appearance of the darker sections of rock from the ground. The texture of the lighter rock in particular is great and provides just enough holds to make for a great route, while the trad parts take solid gear. There's even a bomber handjam down low.

Location

This route is right of the chimney with the thorn bush in it where Four Crows starts. Another route branches off to the left at the 4th bolt,but this one continues straight up.

Protection

5 Bolts, Gear to 1", Chains.

The left Var is called the Cowboy's from hell var. It may be slightly harder and takes a piece of gear at the crux if I remember right. Mar 12, 2015
