Austin pulling the lip on first rodeo


Unique roof for the area with quality movement. Easy face to a dramatic roof and a bomber 3-finger pocket just before gaining the ledge.

If any 200 pound crushers get on this, a hold or two might change shape. Watch out, belayers.


Left of Shelf Life and underneath/to-the-right of Ain't My First Rodeo.


Four or five bolts on the face, three hanging draws on the roof.

The second roof bolt is a spinner. Should still be solid, though it may shortly be replaced with a glue-in.

You may notice two oddly place bolts (to the left of first roof bolt and to the right of the prow under the anchors). These were placed by the landowners before knowing how the line would climb.

took a decent whipper on the second roof draw a couple days ago and I think I might have pulled the bolt a bit. Not sure if it's the fact that its a spinner but it's almost a solid inch off the face of the roof now. Just FYI

Thanks. I'll let the Christopher Brothers know. Hopefully they can get in there and tighten and/or replace the bolts. I heard the first roof bolt might be a spinner now too.
