  • Description 

    The Shootist is the classic sustained left veering dog leg off width, located in the center left of the Wild West Wall.
    Also known as The Red Diamondback for the giant red diamond back rattle snake that takes up residency at the start of this climb.
    He is very old and wise if you do not mess with him he will not mess with you. Climbed around him dozens of times.

    Location 

    Obvious left veering dogleg crack to the right of Two Mules for Sister Sara.

    Protection 

    Gear to 4 inches, gear anchor.
