|This route was recently upgraded with new stainless steel hardware, courtesy of Climbing Magazine's Anchor Replacement Initiative. 7 of the 8 lead bolts were replaced and the anchors were replaced.|

|That is good to hear. It is a great route and one of my favorites. Great route for training laps or your entrance into harder leading. The lip can be done a number of ways, with a knee jam or w/o, everyone climbs it different.|

|"Urban Kor Boy" A link-up I enjoy is to traverse right into More Kor from the anchors of Urban Cowboy. It doesn't change the grade, but it feels a little spicy. The traverse is on great stone, and the climbing gets easier as the runout gets bigger. I use a 2-foot runner on the highest bolt I can reach above the ledge of More Kor to ease rope drag.|

Has anyone been here recently and knows if my draws are still hanging on the extension? I was climbing this last April and had a very unexpected ankle surgery, then traveled out of the country for most of the summer.
Mostly blue Omega Pacific draws, left some on Urban and the rest equipped on Flying Cowboys.
Also, if anyone knows if the draws on the extension to the right are still hanging . . . they belonged to a friend of mine who passed away in April of this year as well, and if they are still there, I'd like to recover them to give to his family.
