The first route left of Cobble Wobble ascends by dodging a bee hive right off the ground; this is Bob's Nob. Stay in the black streak. The crux comes with a pair of dynos and a long reach over a small roof. There is a pocket way out there, and a huge ape index will ease the search. The rock is still crisp (sharp!) and can be a bit tough on the hands.

This route definitely feels harder than 5.11 until the beta is fully sussed out. My own bias is hard 5.11d/512a for linking the last 15 feet of throws and crimps. The sequence from the last clip to the anchor is also cruxy.

This has nice moves, largely very good stone for CWC.


Quickdraws and a rope.
