Cowtown Buttress

  • Grade context: US
  • Ascents: 19




This sector has an excellent grade range, as well as some long routes. The wall is generally less steep than its neighbors, but the routes make up for that with sustained, technical climbing. Since this sector is actually more of a buttress, it gets sun earlier than the Rough Rider Wall. This feature can help on a cold day, but when it’s warm, you will want to hightail it for the shade. Also, this area gets more air flow than either the North Buttress or the Rough Rider Wall, so beware of windy days.

Access issues inherited from Homestead

The area between gate 2 and 3 is private land, please behave respectfully!


Follow the access to Rough Rider Wall and continue until the corner to North Buttress.

Ethic inherited from Homestead

When visiting and climbing at the Homestead, please help to maintain the climber trails used to access the climbing and along the base of the walls. Do a little bit of work each time you come and before you know it there will be well-defined and easy to maneuver and follow trails for all to benefit from.

If you choose to add routes to the area, please do your part to continue the Homestead tradition and use good hardware when equipping your routes. Plan your bolt placements to use solid sections of rock and to allow for minimal rope drag. All routes should have lowering anchors at the end of the routes and dangerously loose rock should be removed from the routes. To date there has been no chipping or gluing at the crag. Please keep it that way.

Thanks to Louie Anderson for providing all the info!!
