West Temple, III, 5.8
We followed the same approach for Cowboy Ridge. Once above the obvious lower rock band, start branching out right looking for a long bush covered ramp that enters a “V” notch in West Temple’s southwest ridge. Avoid following the wrong rubble ridge up to the start of this ramp to avoid having to lose elevation via intersecting gullies. In other words, take the time to study your approach. Once in the ramp, continue along steep walls to your left until an obvious chimney break and access the notch from there, all relatively easy ground with little if any technical difficulty.
