Using anchor bolts for 'Howdy Dude', hung to the Trail side, is done; better to use large pine tree on that ledge.

The top part can be a variation for "Howdy Dude". The start for the full route at the low roof is the crux, with a short vertical and horizontal crack together, but little else to help get up onto the Trail-side face. If you do get both feet onto the face, it is still thin going to the larger ledge. Above there is 5.9 sloped "holds" until you get onto the more layered easier top face.

4 out of 5 stars Tough Start!

The start is an overhang with almost nothing for your feet, and once you do get up doing a layback move, there are only a few TINY pockets for your fingers until you get up onto the first ledge. Easier start to the left. Hang the toprope on the big tree at the top just to the right of Howdy Dude. The start is 5.10 I would agree, but the rest is 5.8/9.
