Description

Begin pulling pockets to a series of large coarse inclusions. As the wall steepens, continue climbing on knobs, small edges, and the occasional pocket. Above the 5th bolt moving to the right, on small polished cobbles for footholds, yields a series of small pockets that lead to the anchor.

Location

Located just right of center on the rounded buttress (The Egg Cup) at the base of The Egg.
4th route from the left.

Protection

7 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor.

I really like this climb, but I think it's harder than 10a. But I also can't figure out how to move right at the 5th bolt so I go straight up...I TR'ed the right moves and they're much easier, I just can't figure out how to do the little traverse! Jun 13, 2011

Nice steep pockets and cobbles until the steepness relents - but so do the holds! I did a step through right into a big foot pocket then up on small cobbles. Nov 28, 2011

Ya tried this today... The last bolt seems harder than 10b! Lots of choss. I hope that this gets cleaned up a bit more as it is a nice climb. Feb 3, 2012

Loved this route! My favorite on the face, but I still have to try The Green Mile. The route was pretty clean and solid. I had no "choss" experience to speak of, so I guess it's cleaned up. Go do it.

All the routes at Texas Canyon were chossy initially, but popular routes like "Boneyard" have lost much of the choss with the passage of many hands and feet. May 27, 2017
