Description

Testosterone Alfresco follows a steep prow with fun moves on big holds. It shares the same start as Sleeping Thunder but veers left after about 20'. A great warm-up for some of the harder steeper routes on the wall.

Location

Farthest route to the left on the main Cowboy Poetry wall. Shares the same start as Sleeping Thunder.

Protection

10 or 11 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

If Alf's allegations are true then I am on his side. The guidebook author was completely in the wrong. Sep 11, 2014
Alf, there's no such thing as "cleanly removing" bolts. Damage is damage.

You're an idiot, and a menace.

How about you just stick to ruining people's shoes and leave the route maintenance to people with brains (and money).

And stay out of Wyoming. The locals don't want you there, and if I see you, I will personally ruin your day (cleanly). Dec 5, 2011

This route was an experiment, to see if the really rotten, highly featured rock could support bolts. I spent days up there cleaning away loose material, and searching for sound places to put bolts.

I liked the result. Unfortunately, shortly after the route was done, a new guidebook was done by a new author. The book included parodies of my route names, and very unfriendly comments.

As a result, I cleanly removed 140 bolts that I had placed at the wild iris area, and ceased to visit.
