This was part of a month long solo peakbagging trip in which I hiked every day and got 70 peaks in 30 days. I started with Little Cowhole, then did the very remote southeast Cowhole and ended on the main peak by a non-standard route on the southeast face. I climbed Old Dad Mountain later that afternoon.
For numerous photos and brief route descriptions see the trip report.
Climbed both Little Cowhole and Cowhole. Great little peaks in a quiet area that I love to camp near in the cooler months.
Ascended up the north gully to the notch just east of the summit. Didn't like final few hundred feet of the gully (loose and ugh) so we descended down the east ridge to an obvious wide saddle and walked down the easy canyon from there. It added about 1/2 a mile to our cross-desert hike on the way back to the trucks but it was less ugly than our ascent route.
NW ridge was loose and unpleasant. The N face was much better.
Yep, was there with LL and EF.
