Rhiannon enjoying the featured face of Bozeman Bul...

Location 

The face that makes up the left wall of the large, right-facing corner of "Space Cowboy".

Protection 

A standard rack up to 2".

Description 

One of the most under-rated moderate face-climbs in the Adirondack Park. A true gem with stunning positioning, and equisite movement.

Start below the large, featured face and angle up past a piton, through a broken crack to a horizontal that leads to the arete. Gain the arete, and make use of the copious bread loaf holds littering the arete below the optional belay anchor at 60'.

Either lower from the first set of drop-ins, or continue for another 40 feet up and slight right into the steep and positive corner system leading to another set of drop-ins.

One of the best 5.6 pitchs in the greater Keene Valley region. Great rock, cool moves, awesome position for such a short route.

Ranks as one of the best 5.6 routes I've ever climbed. I had done North Country Club Crack the day before, and that had my vote only to be trumped 24 hours later. A couple of the moves are technical, at least not beginner's 5.6 stuff, but not physically demanding. Great combination of technicques and exposure make this a destination climb (and, again, ONLY a 5.6!).

There's a wasp nest in a crakc about 30 feet into the climb. If you're allergic you might want to consider climbing another route. 4 people climbed this while I was there and were entirely ignored by the wasps.

Excellent climb, and probably stout for the 5.6 leader. You can skip the first anchor and continue to the top anchor and then lower off in one pitch.

Great climb,thought the first section up to the dropins was 5.6, then a little more difficult to the second. Great 5.6 lead

Great route! I was going to lead it after my friend did today, but he encountered a hornet's nest about 5-10 feet below the first anchor, towards the arete on the left...so I took the top rope willingly.
