Al nearing the top of Cobble Wobble, Jan. 2009.
Cobble Wobble is one of the earliest and finest routes put in at the Wendell Spire area. It starts just about where the trail meets the wall. It is the left of two obvious face climbs both immediately left of the shallow 5.6 bolted ramp.
The ramp starts about 10 feet right and uphill. Deceptively harder than it looks, Cobble Wobble ascends largely excellent cobbles, mostly very small. A crux between bolts 2 and 3 leads to very continuous pebble pinching right up to the last bolt. A second crux between the last bolt and the anchor gives the coup de grace for the finger pump. Don't be shy; a hang on the last bolt is now considered a general courtesy to those of us who run out of juice at the last bolt.
Cobble Wobble is another beautiful Scott Sills line. It is worth three stars by CWC standards, but it's CWC, and nothing gets three stars. This ain't Devil's Head after all!!!
QDs only. Bring 7-8 QDs and something for the double bolt anchor at the top. This line is approximately 50 feet long.

A great, pumpy route, but a bit harder than 10c IMO. Tom's guidebook lists it as 11a, which seemed about right to me. Then again, perhaps it was just the sustained nature of the climbing that made it feel harder ... Out of a sense of duty, and as a courtesy to all those who preceded me, I hung on the last bolt ....

This climb is has twice as many bolts as its neighbor, Icerigger, but it is more difficult.
