  • Description 

    This route starts near the middle of the crag, travels up through a tan quartz dike, and continues through bulging terrain on jugs and liebacks to gain a small ledge below a steep headwall. A long strenuous reach gains more good slopers, and then a mantel delivers you at the anchors. Felt like 11a/b. The move over the headwall is very ape-index dependent.

    This is a very nice route.


    [Six] bolts to a two bolt anchor.

    I should point out that my estimation of the grade of this and "unknown 2" are just that - my own estimates. I based this grade on how it felt to lead it and my wife's efforts to follow it. Could be anywhere from 10b to 11d (snicker).

    This route was put up by Pat and Azenda Thompson, Rick and Jana Thompson and Mark Rolofson. It goes at 10d to the right of the bolts or 11c/d straight on the bolts. We called this route Little Stevie's Favorite Heifer.

    We weren't up for leading this one, but we put a toprope on it after leading Get Your Dieck Off My Barnyard Animals. Fun moves, and not too much drag for a TR.

    I thought this was a very enjoyable climb. It is mostly sustained 5.10 climbing until the last bolt. If you stay on the bolt line at the last bolt, it is probably a mid 5.11 crux, but you can easily bail by moving right onto the adjacent route (Bull Fight).
