At the usual belay stance at end of a short first ...
A fine climb up the east face of Bath Rock,
this route is a classic romp and a must do for every City of Rocks
visitor. Easily the best line, Cowgirl
is primarily solo'd and "juggy" in nature, expect minimal protection. The climbing is very forgiving and offers a relaxed outing with plenty of opportunities for rests.
Begin with an easy pitch on the east face's mid-left side. Locate a large, prominent crack (Easy Way Up
) and start on the face below the end of this crack. Saddle up here and head straight into a large scoop. If using a rope, build a belay at the base of the steep face, or continue climbing. Ascend the steep face ending to the left of a large tree.
A single rack, cordelette, and plenty of slings.

The first pitch in common with Cowboy Route and Easy Way Up is an outstandingly fun 50 feet of climbing to a decently protected belay stance where Easy Way Up starts. Bring either a #3 or # 4 Camalot for an anchor.

Soloing this route was a blast and one that I will do again and again! In my opinion, the best route on the face, if you solo. Very casual with abundant holds and feet. Just to clarify, it climbs the heavily featured patina face between Cowboy (the crack on the left) and Cowdog (the crack on the right that ends at the tree). It will get your heart pumping without scaring you to death and, of course, offers a great view at the top.
