Cow Tipping is the easiest route that heads up the overhang on the uphill side of Cattle Drive Rock. Find something to get yourself off the ground (which can be tricky), and move yourself up and over the roof.

Almost everything in and around the roof is loose. Losing a hand while pulling the roof requires some good padding and spotting. Losing a foot will probably require some reconstructive facial surgury.


A pad or two is wise for the lower section, once over the roof bring a crew to ctach you in case you blow a hnad or foot.

Cow Tipping is one of the classics out here. It is a sitdown start, and while there is loose rock around the roof, the holds you need are solid. So if you grab something loose, you should look around a bit more!
