The Cow is an innocuous ledge located 200’ to the right of The Calf and 200’ off the ground. Slightly right of The Cow and near the ground is a very obvious crack with a bay bush about 25’ up. This rout begins 15’ to the left of this crack. Pitch 1: Friction and face climbing leads to a single bolt 40’ off the deck; continue to climb an additional 40’ of pure friction to a belay bolt (this is the crux of the climb-there is the distinct possibility of decking on this bold lead due to the lack of protection). Move left up a ramp to a crack/flake leading to the top. This climb is a Grade I, 5.8.

We did the second pitch with the 5.9 undercling traverse on TR from the anchors about 200 feet off the deck. It was fun but the only sausage finger i could get into the undercling crack was my pinkie so a slip of my feet would have hurt, a lot. Powerful lieback above to gain the top of the flake.
