Summer evening climbing on Cowpies For Breakfast.


Steep climbing with the crux going past the third bolt. Fairly "sequency" for clipping the bolt at the crux. Challenging again going past the last bolt to the two-bolt anchor. One of the best, if not the best, routes on the Cattle Call wall.


Listed as route #7 on route topo photo for Las Conchas Cattle Call Wall.


6 bolts to two-bolt anchor.

Nice, powerful moves through the 3rd bolt. I'm not too keen on the placement of the 1st bolt though--the rock is solid there, but it's placed in a dish such that a fall onto the 1st bolt would cross-load the carabiner. The moves after the 3rd bolt aren't as difficult as the bottom, but it they're still nice and sustained. The best route on Cattle Call Wall IMO.

It is also easy to set up a bomber top rope anchor with long slings or trad gear.

Excellent pumpy moves at first. Sequence moves. I like the move from 2nd to 3rd bolt.

Great route! A very spicy crux if you are on lead. Sustained 5.10 moves throughout the climb. I agree that placement of the first bolt is a little questionable. However, it does seem to be needed. I recommend an alpine draw with a 60cm runner to prevent rope drag. Caveat to that set up is if you fall before setting you second bolt you will likely deck.

Thanks to whoever moved the first bolt. No more scary cross loading!
