Cobble Wobble action. May 2013.
One of the best routes at El Rito. Very pumpy and sustained after the inital slab. Look for action figures in the pockets up high.
Furthest route to the left on the Big Pine Wall. Starts at the base of the Big Pine.
7 bolts to anchors
The upper part of the route is quite sustained for...
Anna well on her way to a solid redpoint of Cobble...

An excellent climb for grade. Popular. Lots of chalk. Pumpy.

One of my favorites at El Rito. Great moves, long, and sustained with one good rest in the middle. Watch out for some loose rock to the left of the anchors.

The cobble up top to the left of the anchors is loose(!). This is the hold I use for clipping, and from the amount of chalk on it, seems like everybody else does, too. I pulled hard on it and couldn't get it to pry loose, but if you shake it, it definitely rattles. I drew an "X" on it with chalk, but this will wash off in the next rain/snow storm. Beware!

Wait a minute....
So the hold was moving and making noise and you still decided to clip the chains from it? Hmmmmm.....

I did the same thing as Dave, though it wasn't making noise. If you dead hang it the rock won't give, and it is by far the best clipping hold.

This route is a good candidate for retrobolting.

Dave, you will be glad to know the cobble is still up there scarring the shit out of climbers. Why do you think it's named cobble wobble?
