Description 

Like "Regroovable," the best seemed to wait 'lill last when it comes to stellar moderate 11s on the Contest Wall. Just past Little Mecca sits a trio of routes marked by all home-boy hangers. Silverado is the middle and by far the best of the 3 and sports hangers that have to be read to be believed! Burma Shave ads for climbers (if any of you still remember those) and the climbing is even better ! Very continous, technical, and pumpy this route packs in a huge varity of climbing with little chance for a shake. Keep it together as it's not over 'till you reach the anchors that Renaissance (the route to the left) shares. There is a wiggly block seemingly jammed about 3/4 of the way up that I have used,pulled, stood on, etc. and seems to be solid, but use your own judgement! This is a very long route with 11 or 12 clips plus the anchors. With my 60m rope I can comfortable make it back down but there isn't a lot of rope left so pay attention if you're using a 50m! Enjoy!

Protection 

10-12 bolts plus anchors!! Not 8 as the picture shows. This is a long route, watch your rope as you lower.

Indeed this one offers a quality entertainment package, but the loose block you mention spooks the hell out of every person I've talked to who has done the route. I suspect it would go with a little coaxing from a prybar, and the world would be a safer place without it. Until it's gone, use the uttmost caution when pulling on it!

It's probably going to take a crow-bar because it seems at least as solid if not better than when I first yanked on it 5 years ago, but yeah it needs to go! Any volunteers?

Real and continuous 11 climbing with excellent moves throughout. You do not need to use the giant scary block AT ALL.
