Description:

Very nice crack climb. Expect finger cracks, fist cracks, hands. A good variety of climbing. The original route traverses left a long ways on the last pitch. There is a new bolted 5.11 variation that is a more direct line to the summit via face moves. Classic! P.S. The bolts at the end are the proper finish to Coyote Calling and are only 5.10 (Coyote Calling is 5.11). The 5.7 traditional finish is way more fun.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful

Great belays, climbed with a party of 3. I linked the final 2 pitches, finishing with the sport variation. Mind the ledge below the sport finish, I popped off and took a grounder from the 2nd bolt...

5 out of 5 stars Blow me down!

This was a really fun route, though it was super super windy, which made rappelling a bastard. I got to lead the 1st and 3rd pitch. I think pitch 1 is harder than pitch 2. Definitely go past the first anchors to the next ones about 30 feet above. If it is windy, be prepared for rope trouble on the rappel.

5 out of 5 stars Fine Jade

Climed with jrathfon and I led every pitch. Took one fall on the first pitch when exiting right from the OW, this pitch felt much more difficult than the "crux" 5.11- higher up. Took a rack from purple c3-4 camalot with 4x .4, 3x .5-1, 2x 2-3. We broke this into 6 pitches and had a mighty fine time.
