  • Description 

    This route starts just left of Little Stevie's Favorite Heifer, a striking route that follows a quartz dike. The route takes a little roof and charges up steep terrain past several bolts. One can step right to a chain anchor, or (much better) step left and do a short but very cool slab finale. This is a pretty good route.


    A sport route, but most would like to have some finger-sized wires or cams for above bolt #3.

    Shoot! I thought you looked like Ray Snead! I was there with my wife today, as you were leaving. We did all the routes here. This is a good one. #1 Metolius is good before the slab moves, which are, as Ray said, lots of fun (if brief.)

    The route to the left of this one appears to be abandoned -anyone have any info?

    This route was put up buy Pat and Azenda Thompson. We gave it about 5.9. A few small cams are useful above 3rd bolt and then continue up to big hole in slab and commit to an awesome slab move to anchor. We called this route Get Your Dieck Off My Barn Yard Animals.

    There are two more mixed routes to left of Barn Yard Animals. These were both put up ground-up by Pat and Azenda Thompson and Chris Coney:

    Just Moo It, 11a. Just left of Barn Yard Animals, climb past two bolts on a broken slab past bushes and then go up an easy crack to a small roof. Step over the roof and do some awfully thin moves past a bolt to the anchors. Pro: 3 bolts plus some small cams and stoppers.

    Just Another Cow's Climb, 8? to 10a. Scramble up to the ledge just left of Just Moo It. Clip a bolt at ledge, climb up, place gear and stand on a big flake. Clip the next bolt and do the crux. Then place more gear up a slab crack and pull over small overlap to anchors shared with Just Moo It. Pro: 2 bolts plus small-to-medium cams and stoppers.

    Don't skip the slab by heading right... the move up past the last bolt is worthwhile (and much easier if taller).

    This route is an ok climb, but Little Stevie's Heifer is cooler. The runout at the top is pretty significant, and although it is a very basic scramble, it may freak out the novice sport climber who only brought quick draws.

    The route's something like 5.8+ until the mantle onto the slab, which is 10a, like it or not you crusty old sandbaggers.

    Mantel schmantel. Sorry, but this route is very 9'ey. It's also a pretty nice route. It's got some interesting movement, has distinct and different sections, and, contrary to the opinions voiced here, probably doesn't need any gear.
