Description

Climbing on delicate edges and flakes, without a distinct crux. Watch out for loose stuff, and do not expect the typical TC pockets here.

third route from the left, starts on the left side of the large bush at the base, 20 feet right of Gentle Barn.

Protection

5 bolts to ring anchors (shared with Stick to Your Guns)

Rating in my guidebook is 5.10b, however if Boneyard, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Before the Storm or Yellow Rose of Texas are 5.10b, this one feels a bit more difficult Jun 6, 2014

Drill Baby Drill is 5.10b/c by consensus. Harder than Boneyard and Before the Storm, but on par with Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
There are still some good sized holds coming off of this line and a few suspect holds/flakes remain, so pull down not out. Feb 4, 2016

Lightly tested the "pull down, not out" flake and watched it flex. Didn't want to be the guy who breaks it so I traversed right of bolt line to a reachy pocket instead. May 19, 2016
