Men With Cow's Heads takes the right-hand (more or less straight up) crack of the prominent Y-shaped crack formation in the middle of the Atlantis Wall. (Solar Technology (5.6) is the left-slanting crack).This climb protects well and would make a great beginner TR or lead.

Another crack splits off to the left about 2/3 of the way up this climb. Vogel doesn't rate it as a distinct climb, but it goes at around 5.6+.

What is behind this route's name?  Hint: The name's origin has nothing to do with the route itself and everything to do with something nearby.


Standard rack to hand size. Long slings may come in handy for setting an anchor on top.
