Description

Junky looking climbing through dubious stuff for the first couple bolts gets you to some much better jugs for a couple more bolts. The crux bulge comes about halfway up. Figure out how to paw your way up and over this to some more good holds. Steeper, fun climbing with some less obvious moves continues to easier ground and the anchor.

Location

The first route (right route) on the Bull Horn, the independent tower just upstream (east) from the Monster Wall.

Protection

9 bolts to fixe stainless steel clip sport anchors.

Great route, and a good warmup. But, it is a little reachy and stiff at the grade. The route is no longer dirty at all. Oct 15, 2017

Good route but height dependent. 5.10 for over 5-9, 5.11 for under 5-5 May 31, 2015

Dirty climbing down low leads to some pretty sweet moves higher. Hopefully more traffic will clean up the lower section. I broke off a couple of loose holds last night. :-p Jul 30, 2010
