Description:

This climb is going to be popular. It had outstanding climbing on good rock, and bolts right where a 5.9 leader needs them. Locate a small splitter crack about 30 feet left of Latch Key Kids. Climb the crack until it ends at a small roof. Pull the roof, and then amble up the clean, juggy face. (This route is named for the routes immediately right of it, which, early in their lives were all theme-named for the movie, Brokeback Mountain. When the Williams guidebook came out in 2010, I was surprised to see all those route names had changed... except for one of mine, Cowboy Love.)

Descent Options:

Lower or rappel from 2-bolt anchor

This climb is going to be popular. It had outstanding climbing on good rock, and bolts right where a 5.9 leader needs them. It went up on lead, the two protection bolts being drilled from hooks and the anchor from a terrifying stance above the last bolt.
