Coyote Waits, 5.8
  • Coyote Waits- 5.8- 75’-
  • I thought all the grades were soft here, particularly this one. It was my first time on conglomerate cliffs like this, so I was still fairly tedious leading it. But the holds and pockets are huge. Eight, not seven as the guide books suggests, bolts to anchor.

    The rock looks like the rock at the Pinnacles. It can be nerve wracking leading on it, because you are not sure if a hold is good or not. You develop a habit of tapping holds.

    lol, Lisae..my habit of tapping holds was constant before finding this stuff. Unfortuantly I find the worst rock to climb on in the world. I took an Aussie up Mount Brock yesterday in the Canadian Rockies and he said "is all the rock this loose" and of course I thought it was decent. But you are sure right...I don't think I could ever get that comfortable climbing this stuff....cheers
