Three hawks soaring above the NW Slabs. Doctor Cow...


This is a great climb up the slab below Cow Pie Ledge. Start as for Cows in Space, but move left as the bolts split. Really fun and enjoyable climbing leads up the beautiful slab, getting better and more engaging the higher you go. The cool, little crux is moving up from the last bolt. A few delicate moves lead to a sloping, horizontal crack and an easy mantel onto the ledge.

- The 10b finish traverses right at the last bolt and finishes on Cows in Space.


Slab below Cow Pie Ledge.


15 bolts (way over-bolted).

Killer route it is well worth the hike around the north side for this one alone. Be warned even with an extended draw on every bolt the rope drag still kinda sucked.
