|Bath Rock - East
A fine climb up the east face of Bath Rock, this route is a classic romp and a must do for every City of Rocks visitor. Easily the best line, Cowgirl is primarily solo'd and "juggy" in nature, expect minimal protection. The climbing is very forgiving and offers a relaxed outing with plenty of opportunities for rests.
Begin with an easy pitch on the east face's mid-left side. Locate a large, prominent crack (Easy Way Up) and start on the face below the end of this crack. Saddle up here and head straight into a large scoop. If using a rope, build a belay at the base of the steep face, or continue climbing. Ascend the steep face ending to the left of a large tree.
Mid-center, east face of Bath Rock. Shares the start with Cowboy, and Easy Way Up.
A single rack, cordelette, and plenty of slings.
This is the start common to 3 routes on the East F...

The first pitch in common with Cowboy Route and Easy Way Up is an outstandingly fun 50 feet of climbing to a decently protected belay stance where Easy Way Up starts. Bring either a #3 or # 4 Camalot for an anchor.
