Description Suggest change

Flying Cowboys is an interesting route, and the only 12d on the Primo Wall. The best way to describe this one is two tricky boulder problems separated by a huge rest on a ledge. If you can link the initial powerful throw for the lower crux, and follow this with tricky climbing into the mantle, then you can take a nap on the ledge before finishing the route. Don't be misled into thinking the climb is over though, some difficult moves still separate you from the anchors and the Redpoint. Two stars for the sweet moves, not three though because of the nap-ledge rest.

Protection Suggest change
