Eric Ruljancich on the first bulge while doing the...

Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Not a single crimp on the climb and very few holds that are horizontal. Two big bulges and a steep finish will keep you interested to the end. A long series of opposition moves through the first bulge make this one of the more unique climbs at the Rough Rider. The second bulge doesn't flow as well as the first bulge due to a tricky crux. The second bulge has a couple of less than ideal pockets and more side-pulls. The finish passes another much smaller but fun bulge and leads to horizontal jugs.

Just before the big ledge there is some funky dirty rock on the left so stay right on the gray rock. This gray rock looks bad as well but is solid.

Location 

Left most route on the N. Buttress. Start on a boulder and lean over to the finger pod to start it.

Thanks RJ. Doesn't make sense but it rolls off the tongue and we enjoyed Cinco De Homestead for the first time. Really cool moves on this one. Something for next year. Woo Hoo!

Bouldery crux at the start leads to a sit down rest at the choss ban that cuts through the entire wall. I found a fun sequence through the next bulge then up a ly-back to a thinner techy section. After that it is pretty mellow to the anchors.
