Description Suggest change

The Cove. Mostly 5.11 some 12s bolted sport routes and easier stuff (left side past big blocks).

Getting There Suggest change

13 miles down Bowman Lake Rd from Hwy 20. First major cliff past slabs on right at the bottom of the big descent down the fire road into Bowman Valley. Follow the cement flume carrying water (on right) about 1/4 mile to The Cove. Cross flume on small bridge by mini gauging station. Easier climbs begin on far left side of cliff behind large boulder above flume tunnel (water out flow). This is about `1/2 mile before you get to the Bridge.
