Ben Collett on Urban Cowboy.
Start by climbing moderately easy terrain before moving through a bulge/small roof for the first crux. Depending on height and/or preference there are a couple ways to get through the roof. Above, shake out before steep climbing and stemming in the overhanging corner. Finish on steep climbing to the anchors out right.
Just left of Kor's Corner (Route 18).

That is good to hear. It is a great route and one of my favorites. Great route for training laps or your entrance into harder leading. The lip can be done a number of ways, with a knee jam or w/o, everyone climbs it different.

"Urban Kor Boy" — A link-up I enjoy is to traverse right into More Kor from the anchors of Urban Cowboy. It doesn't change the grade, but it feels a little spicy. The traverse is on great stone, and the climbing gets easier as the runout gets bigger. I use a 2-foot runner on the highest bolt I can reach above the ledge of More Kor to ease rope drag.
