I felt getting to the 5th(maybe 6th can't remember for sure) bolt was the crux. Then again, I went to the left of the bolt while someone afterwards told me its easier to go to the right. Jun 1, 2017

I totally agree with Randy. A good number of the routes in the Corridor tout moves MUCH harder than the grade would suggest—relative to other climbs of the same grade in the Alabama Hills. May 11, 2016

The left route of the three classics in the Corridor. The route to the right is 'Hole in the Wall", right of that is "Saddle Sore". I've been doing these routes since not long after they were put up, and the bottoms has gotten harder as tiny holds have been broken off. I think they are all 11a now.

There is a variation line of bolts to start Rodeo Queen that is right of the original line. I think this is a misbegotten addition to the wall. Nov 8, 2014

Excellent rock quality and a couple 5.10 cruxes make this a great route Nov 2, 2014
