Comments: I like the quote "One of my favorite clip ups in the canyon." It is a great clip up - with 15 feet of 5.10 crack climbing and then ends with maybe 30 feet of gear climbing, including the crux.

It is a great route, highly recommended and it is really well protected. I also think this one is probably 12c.

Location: UT : Zion National Park : East Temple : Cowboy Bob Goes to Zion (5.10+ C2+)

Comments: This was my introduction route to Zion and Utah sandstone. After this route I vowed never to return to Zion. It took my 5 years to muster up the courage to return. Since then I have done several other routes that I loved and for some weird reason I am having the urge to try this one again to see if it is as scary as I remember. My partner freed the C2+ section because he was afraid to weight the aid pieces.

Comments: This route sounds awesome. Nice work guys. I will have to get down and try this one. Shouldn't this be posted in the Little Spotted Wolf canyon section?

Comments: This is labeled as the Varco Route in the Super Topo guide book. It is an awesome line that is well worth your time. Nice lead linking both of these together. I thought P1 was a little stiffer and would give it 5.11+. P2 is super fun and interesting the whole way at mid 5.10.
