These 2 new routes must have gotten lost after wandering away from the Beer Trailer

I thought this one had better movement on better holds than Colt 45. Fewer rest too. Both are super steep fun though...Nice work!!!

Ill be sure to move bolts next week. They are pretty spicy in current positions for people not super confident at the grade. and Thanks, glad you liked them!

3 years later, still super sandy. Would be a cool route if it ever cleans up. Will bring a brush next time I'm out there.

Forgot to mention, the first half of the bolts on this route already need replaced, must be similar rock makeup to the Bob cave.
