|Mine Hole Crag
Cow Patty Crack is a short but fun trad route. Go to the right side of the crag and uphill a short distance to the start of the route.
Climb a right-facing corner to a roof. Traverse left at a horizontal crack and climb easier rock to the chain anchor.
The cruxes are halfway up the corner and moving left at the horizontal crack.
Excellent moves on good rock; too bad it's not any longer.
Finger to hand-sized gear (green Alien to a #2 Camalot). 2-bolt anchor with chains at the top.

Good route, IMO pretty stiff for 5.9 especially pulling left around the corner. Felt like 10. One of the better crack climbs at the Hole.
