Description

Follow the major gully crack system up the center of the low lying formation on the SE side of Jack Squirrel Peak. We did several rappels on the left side after getting from the pinnacle top to the main wall.

Location

Cowgirl Dreams is on the big low lying formation on the SE corner of Jack Squirrel Peak.

This is listed in Orenzak's guidebook as "mainline", and it's given 5 stars. It also says that you can walk off to climbers left after doing a single rappel.

What isn't stated is that you should plan on leaving slings to do that one rap, since there are no bolts, and that the descent is probably impossible as a walk off. We left some cord. You'll need two 70m ropes to rap from there, from a dead tree (that's probably a ticking time bomb) for the first double rope rap, then a small living tree for the second.

Be on the lookout for A LOT of loose rock, and try to stay out of the line of fire. Jul 24, 2016
