Description

This route follows bolts on the left face/ arete of the wall. The climbing is fairly straight forward until a crux about 2/3 of the way up where you are forced directly onto the arete. After deciphering the tricky sequence many sharp holds await you as the climb turns to vertical/ slabby. This climb has very enjoyable movement up to the point where things get sharp and slightly awkward following the crux.

Protection

Bolts to chain anchors.

Hey Kids, here is a little history. This route was lead ground up. Twice I was so pumped I couldn't let go to put a hook on and had to take the 15 footer. Good or bad, I was the first person to use a cordless hammer drill on Mt. Lemmon. Cowpunks was one of the first 12s to go in on Mt. Lemmon with a power drill. Mr. B Meets the Pharaoh might have been the first. Mar 11, 2006

Yes, but you need to warm up elsewhere then hit it in the afternoon. I will do it with you if you want as I may move some bolts around at the top. Climb at Goosehead in the morning then Cowpunks. Jun 2, 2009
