Description

Climb the crack to the right of Don't Have a Cow. The crux is probably at the bottom, after you leave the large blocks at the beginning of the climb. Some beginners may also have to work at traversing to the left toward the top to be able to reach the chains.

It's the easiest route at the Rough and Readies and a fun change of pace. The climbing is okay at best, but for those how can only lead Don't Have a Cow, it does provide another alternative.

Location

Protection

Top rope off of the anchors to Don't Have a Cow, or if you want to practice trad leading, bring a set of cams and nuts.

I didn't have cams big enough for the last 15 ft, but placed a couple small pieces with long runners in the cracks on the right side wall. All good. Sep 3, 2013
