Round-Up is about fifty to seventy-five feet to the climbers left from Texas Two Step (over, around and through some large boulders). The climb starts up a couple moves of suspect holds to parallel finger cracks. The right side takes green aliens. Establish yourself on the finger crack and make some bouldery moves (.11a) to gain the hand crack. Stroker hands eventually taper to .75-.5 camalot size at a horizontal break. Move up and right at the horizontal break continuing with hands to large hands to the top and a two bolt anchor. The climb is a little sandy at the bottom and the very top...but an excellent climb for the grade and very safe.
The route takes gear ranging from small fingers to big hands. 2x Green Aliens protect the start then .5, .75, #1, #2, and #3 camalots. Doubles in the #1, #2, and #3 sizes (perhaps an additional #3 if this is a difficult hand size for you)
Here is Jeff leading the route. You can see the g...

A great climb for those wanting a break from the hand cracks at Maverick. Also a good climb on hot days, as it stays shady a good part of the day. Green aliens are key in the beginning!

Probably more like a 10b my partner and I thought. Especially after having just done Tequila Sunrise which is 10d. Tequila Sunrise is much harder.

Awesome climb for sure. I typically have to fight hard to get up 5.11s and I didn't have any trouble leading this. Felt like 10-. I found it easier than Hot Toddy.

Great climb; I'd say it has a single hard move that's 5.10+. The rest is much easier, and there's good gear the whole way.

COLUMN IS LOOSE! While climbing this route the column shifted to one side and came out slightly (an inch or so).
