Description

Every bit as good as its more esteemed neighbor to the left, Buffalo Soldier is an excellent moderate pocket-pulling masterpiece. This long & sustained line is the perfect warmup route, and a worthy objective in its own right.

Begin up steeper rock just below the thin detatched flake. A few thin moves work up to the flake, where the holds increase in size. The angle kicks back a bit and excellent pockets begin to appear just where you need them as you cruise up the excellent slab. This line finishes at an anchor atop the slab, but there is a bolted extension (Charlie Drew That Sinnin' Bull, 5.12c)that tackles the looming roof.

Location

In the center of the Cowboy Poetry Wall, immediately right of "Take Your Hat Off Boy". This line can be identified by a two-foot wide flake about 10' above the ground.

I actually like this route better than 'Take Your Hat Off.' If you finish through the bulge above its a 12c extension called 'Charlie Drew That Spinnin' Bull' (4 bolts for the ext.). Oct 25, 2009

This route was actually retro-cleaned in July of 2006 by the F.A. party of "Charlie Drew that Spin'n Bull". It went from dirty and sharp to comfy, fun, and a bit easier. Aug 12, 2010
