Cattle Guard Syndrome action.


A decent beginner lead marred by a bizarre start.

Either boulder directly up to the first independent bolt (harder than 5.7, but reasonable), or traverse left from the first bolt of (06) Pie In Your Eye. Follow moderate, low-angle rock to the chains.


In between (05) Cud for Lulu and (06) Pie in Your Eye (see topo for those routes).


Tightly bolted, at least after you reach the first independent bolt.

If you use the first bolt of (06) Pie in Your Eye, the route has 7 bolts. Otherwise, it has 6. Chain anchors.

who bolted this route? They did a good job no spinning and quality hardware. i give it a 5.7 its slabby and traverses but the bolts are plenty close togeather for a safe first lead.
