Description

The Cowboy Crags are located well up the west side of Ryan Mountain, above and slightly right from Saddle Rocks, as seen from the road. The identified routes in the guide are all traditional and located on the middle or highest formation. Other routes exist; however, I have no information about them at this time. The route to do here is the clean corner of Wisest Crack (5.7) which commands an impressive view from it's vantage point high on the flanks of Ryan Mountain.

Getting There

Park in the Hall Of Horror's parking lot and take the Saddle Rock trail east. Upon nearing Saddle Rock hike south (right)around that formation then head east up the steep slope toward the crags. Plan on a 45 minute, mostly uphill, approach from the car to the crags.
