Description

Go buy some beer boys, because this is the route to get drunk for. This formation is very much like the Mexican Hat. The resemblance is the only similarity. Actually, this route is more technical than the Mexican Hat. Look in Bjorstad's DESERT ROCK III guide (page 254) for directions to Devil's Canyon. From the parking lot, stay left (east) on the trail. Whenever there is a decision in trail direction, always take the left option. About 20-30 minutes from the car, you'll see a cowboy hat up and to the right (west) of the trail. Remember that this is NOT in the canyon itself, rather it's in the flat lands and meadows below the canyon. The route ascends the south side of the formation. Be sure to haul some rocks up there to add to the summit cairn. If you can figure out how to climb this thing, you'll know how to get off. Let me make this more simple. Not your average gumby with the latest issue of Rock and Ice can look in the aid climbing pages and figure this route out. This short thing is more advanced than Prodical Sun in Zion. So grab a Pabst and climb the damn thing! -tda

Protection

I won't [tell] you about gear, but I will say that beer is mandatory equipment for this route!
