Description 

Just right of Scott's line, Cobble Wobble, is a route that runs up to the same anchor. Nowhere near as generous with the bolts, Icerigger needs a committing sequence just getting to bolt two. It is fingery at the end and still a little spooky.

This has good stone overall.

I don't agree that an R rating applies to this route. The crux is definitely moving past the first clip and is committing, but once the hard move is made, the second clip comes at a reasonable stance. I think a fall here would still keep you off the ground, but not while clipping.

Feels a little harder at the crux, but I think it's because of the committing move right at the first bolt.

Not R rated. It's a well-bolted sport climb, just don't blow the second or third clip. I felt it had a second crux getting to the chains. Definitely not over when you gain the rest stance after the 4th clip.

Definitely a little spooked heading up to the second clip, but it was good once I commmitted!
