This route, like it's neighbor to the right, is a local classic and a highly recommended route for the grade that provides fun climbing on mostly large holds up a vertical wall.
Start down and left from Bye Crackie and just right of Golden Poodle and climb broken rock to a bolt 20' up (optional gear to 2.5" available). From here the wall steepens and well-protected climbing on mostly incut patina plates and edges leads to anchors on a sloping ledge.
This is the second bolted route from the left and is just left of Bye Crackie.
6 bolts, 2 bolt sport anchor

Coyotes is awesome. It is a great warm-up climb as well as a perfect route for those leading at the grade. This one is almost dead vertical but the holds are bomb and the moves very well-protected. A true Holcomb classic.

Excellent route! Great lead climb!! I think when I was on the 3rd bolt, I had a section that I had a bit of a hard time. Once I figured out my sequence, it was AWESOME!! LOVED IT! ~~ROCKY~~

I literally did the climb at sunset. Other than the fact that the temp dropped quickly due to it being almost east facing so it made the climb a little more difficult with stiff fingers.. but a fun climb and rated perfectly
