Description

This is a simple route that starts directly across from the Bath Rock parking area. The route varies from guide book to guide book, but basically as a 5.5 it runs straight towards the left crack. It takes the line furthest left of the tree on the face. The climbing involves moving from one large hand hold to the next. It is on the east face, and a little left of center. Descend via the back.

Protection

Single rack up to 6 inches, sling horns for protection on the face.

I second Rodger's comment, above: this page is really the description for "Cowgirl". "Cowboy" takes a line further left of the tree on the face. Either way, they are both super awesome free solo lines. 3 stars if done sans rope, 1 star if you haul up gear. Jun 23, 2013

This route description coincides with the route diagram in the Bingham guidebook for the Cowgirl Route, ending in the right most crack system with a tree in it. The guidebook route for Cowboy route aims almost straight up towards the left crack of the two described above. Jun 15, 2013

Make this a 2 pitch climb and set your 1st belay 30ft up directly below the upper crack in the big fissure that will be standing in. Bring a large cam ( #5 camalot) for the anchor. On the 2nd pitch you can tie off a knob on your way to the obvious crack that will deposit you on the top off the formation. It is runout above the belay but the climbing is very easy. There is no tree at the top but if you move a little ways back there is a sizable hole in the rock that you can cinch for an anchor, with supplemental gear placements nearby. It's a fairly long climb and you have to walk off the back via the 4th class scramble that contains the rebar handles. A nice moderate climb. Aug 26, 2012
Great fun for the whole family including small kids. There are abundant chicken heads to sling. Didn't feel hard or run out at all. May 15, 2010

This is a great beginners intro to free-soloing or leading. Oct 24, 2006
