Is this the route to the right of "Poke Salad Annie"? Sorry if it's not...there are two routes to the right of what I believe is "Poke Salad Annie" and I can't be sure if Urban Cowboy is one of them. Aug 2, 2013

You've got it right, Nancy. L to R....."Poke Salad Annie," then "Urban Cowboy." Run out? We were concerned that folks would consider the bolts too close together. Oct 18, 2013

The bolts are not run out at all. Fun routes, too! Dec 29, 2013
This is a wonderful route. No runouts. Huge thanks to Ben and Pam and any other route setters at Texas. We have such a good time there!
