Scott Arno leads Space Cowboy(5.7)

Description 

This route tackles the large, enticing corner atop the main terrace.

Climb the corner, passing a short, wide section (crux). Continue up the very featured corner to a small roof. Pass this on the right, continue climbing the corner until another, much larger roof at the top is reached. At this roof, it is easy to escape left to a set of drop-ins shared with "Geronimo", or one can making the exciting 20' traverse out right to the shared tree anchor with "Desperado" and "Crazy Horse".


Location 

The crack in the large right facing corner.


Protection 

A standard rack with some extra, long runners.

This is a really fun route. It was an exciting lead for me as the first of the day even though I had climbed it before. The traverse isn't as bad as it looks. Just stay calm and find ALL the available feet.
