Description

Death of a Cowboy is a five-star route with a great boulder problem start followed by one of the best 100' stretches of 5.10 hands in the creek. The in-your-face opening demands powerful moves on first knuckle locks with crap for feet to a total hero move to a jug. Standing on this jug provides a nice rest and time to soak up the glory of the send before tackling overhanging hands to vertical wide hands forever.

Protection

A few green and yellow Aliens for the start, then a couple #1 Camalots protect transitioning to the hand crack. The hand crack itself is #2 and #3 Camalots all the way. A 70m rope is necessary to reach the ground.
