Big Balls In Cowtown is a unique and varied route in the Forks norm. It features exciting technical face and a steep fingers finish on an isolated buttress amongst other obscurities.

Not as runout as its neighbor to the north, the gear is good just non existent for the first 20ft off the ledge. A lucky jump back to the belay could be an option?

From the belay ledge step left through some wobble blocks and onto the clean face. Climb the unprotected technical face to the first sign of gear. Climb through a boulder problem to a mini-ledge. After a rest continue up the left leaning and steep boulder problem finish. Sporty.


Start on a comfortable sized ledge 20ft off the ground; 15ft left of High Anxiety. Look for the clean face on a warping buttress.
