A good gear-protected lead in the crack just right of Bovine Inspiration in the middle of Cattle Call Wall. Crux is getting around bulges.


Just right of bolted route "Bovine Inspiration". Listed as route #4 on route topo photo for Las Conchas Cattle Call Wall.


Good gear placements to chains at the top of "Bovine Inspiration"

Placements are plentiful, but the rock is pretty sandy/filthy....

I noticed last weekend, 9/20/09, that this variation now sports two bolts before merging left into Bovine Inspiration. Seems I recall that happening before and the bolt(s) was chopped?

This would be a shame to see the bolts in question to be chopped.These new bolts are in the correct location for the climb to be lead by the most natural line. The original bolts force the line to climb harder moves over a bulge that would put a hurt'in on ones ankles if one were to fall while making these moves. For what it is worth I feel like the line climbs better and more safely on the new bolts.
Yee ha and climb on!!!!!!

Saw no bolts. Just as well, none were necessary.
