Description

Begin with good pockets on fantastic vertical to slabby 5.11c 'ish face climbing to a stance below the obvious roof. Big moves on mostly good holds leads out the roof to a hard to see jug at the anchors. Falling while going for the anchors (crux) leads to a great, bowel churning free air fall.

Location

When looking at the main Cowboy King Wall (the central wall with huge roof), American Beauty is the second bolted line from the left (the first bolted line is the start for two 5.13's out the left side of the roof).

Protection

Bolts to a two bolt anchor.

What a route! Engaging face climbing to an amazing finish. One of the best climbs at the grade anywhere. Enough said. Jun 24, 2017

There's a bolt just before the anchor. So no huge whipper if you can't find that perfect clipping jug Jun 3, 2015

This route is sick, some bigger bouldery moves. If you're shorter you get to do a foot cutting throw to tackle the first roof. Jun 22, 2013
