Description

This is the bolted line on the far right side of Resaquita Wall. "Cowboys" starts at the corner, moving up and left onto a ledge. Continue up and left past an overlap. The crux comes high, moving over a small roof and into a flaring groove. Top out on easier holds. A fun climb on overhanging rock.

Not a great climb, but it does climb steep rock for the grade. The other climbs to the left are much better. Nov 18, 2007

Clip a low bolt from the ground, pull some jugs onto a ledge and then climb to the 2nd bolt looking at a grounder. The good moves are next as you surf the jugs up and left, and then finish with an grotty fist crack (bolted) or by face climbing around it.

The anchors are on a ledge about 15' back from the lip so you can forget about lowering off and/or cleaning it. Belay on top and walk off left, or for a more enjoyable variation you can traverse left after clipping the last bolt, clip the anchors on Sureshot and lower.

The name comes from that annoying Paula Cole song of the same name. Sep 22, 2007
