Quick-draw McGraw, bolted 10c, 2-1/2 pitch
Approach via main Sabine upper-buttress rappel route. Make 3 x 30m rappels to get onto the middle of the Limestone Cowboy ramp. All stations are bolted and have rings. Climb up Limestone Cowboy for about 20m, to a 2 bolt station at the base of a bolted line rising up the steep rock on the right.

P1, 5.9, 30m, Start up the steep small ramp, easier than it looks, and the rock is excellent. Follow the bolts up left & climb over a few small overlaps. Moderate face climbing up & right on excellent rock. Climb up to the right of the belay below a roof, and then step left to the station.
P2, 10a, 15m, The initial rock above the station is friable, but has been cleaned into submission. The bolts traverse sharply left on very steep rock, good holds, soon coming to another 2 bolt station. Resist the urge to continue, as the rope-drag will kill you.
P3, 10c, 30m, Follow the bolts straight up good rack & then trend left towards a scary looking steep corner. Thatís your line. The corner has a thin crack in the back of it, a bit reachy. The final bolt in the corner is way left because of the death-cookie that used to be here. Itís gone, but the bolt remains way left. Climb up steep easy to the top, a 2-bolt station over the lip.
