This high-quality route was one of the very first bolted routes at the Holcomb Valley Pinnacles, and to this day remains a popular classic.
Climb well-featured face to arete past six bolts utilizing the amazingly good holds that sprinkle this route. A classic and recommended route for the grade at this area.
The FA was orginally done with 2 bolts, a few pieces and some tie-offs for plates; years later the original bolts were replaced, more bolts placed and an anchor added so that 5.7 climbers might better enjoy the route.
This is the right-most bolted climb on the crag and starts up and right from all of the other bolted climbs on this face.
6 bolts, 2 bolt sport anchor

A great moderate and as a result, probably the most popular in the Pinnacles. Be patient - there's plenty of great routes in the area and you'll eventually find this one open. Kudos to the retro bolters for giving Bye Crackie it's own anchor as Coyotes is perhaps the second most popular route.

Been leading for a few months. First time on HVP. Was there July 11 thru 13th. Gorgeous weather! This route was my 2nd lead for the day. Very enjoyable. Loved transferring to the actual face of the route on the 3rd bolt(I think it was the 3rd bolt??). It was fun! Granted I got a little haired out moving onto the last bolt! HA! Overall well protected and nice route! ~~ROCKY~~
