Just right of Bucket Slave, find a wall that has graffiti that says "pink cows fly at night" This route heads up cool pockets on this wall. The start is the hardest, but the climbing doesn't let up until you get into the crack near the top. This route is also probably easier than it is rated, but it is still really good.


5 bolts, no anchors. the last two bolts are cold shuts, so either lower off the top one, or string the rope through the bottom one too.

I recall using some "enhanced" pockets along the way. Fun route. 2 stars.

i don't remember any of the pockets being chipped. if there are any, what a pitty as it is a wonderful line.

Great route if you like pocket climbing, but it's a little short, so 3 stars (it's no "Bullet"). If the pockets are enhanced then they did a terrible job because most of the pockets are heinous!

Is it just me, or does this thing end a little prematurely? It seems like it could be extended to the top of the might be fun to pull over the roof at the top.
