Ride 'em Cowboy

5.9, Sport,  Avg: 2.8 from 191 votes
FA: Kevin Pogue, Jason Prinster, 1993
Washington > Central Region > Frenchman Coule… > Sunshine Wall > Near End of Sunshine…

Description

A fun climb up the bolted arete (basically the first climb you come to on the approach). The climbing is similar to the routes on at the Feathers area, except the holds seem much less likely to fall off when you pull on them.

Protection

Quickdraws, bolted anchor with permadraws.

[Hide Comment] One of the better 5.9s at Vantage. Make sure you live up to the route's name by getting the ultimate cowboy's no-hands rest! Mar 25, 2009

[Hide Comment] FIRST ASCENT: Kevin Pogue, Jason Prinster, april 1993. I climbed this back in 93 and had no idea it was a brand new route. It is a cool route. Mar 5, 2017

[Hide Comment] Very good route. Lots of fun moves that are different from the typical climbing in this area. Some fun criss-crossing. Mar 22, 2018
