Cool Ranch Flavor is located on the hueco littered face of the Morning Glory Wall to the right of Nine Gallon Buckets and starts up nice hueco pockets with a single crux near the top of the climb. Felt like a one move wonder climb but still plenty of fun making the moves between huecos.
Start at the base of a vertical seam running up the wall with huecos on either side. The first half of the climbing stays on or near the seam before moving right onto the face into a big undercling hold. Move up to the last bolt using a side pull crimp before the final crux moves move you back to the left on small edges. Two pockets next to the anchors offer good hand holds with small feet as you clip the chains.
Overall a great climb that gets its grade from one or two moves before the anchor rather than sustained climbing.
