Location of Motherwall is not correct

"The route is at Motherwall, which is to the right of a prominant arch on the other side of the river about 200 yards up river from Boulevard wall. It has a vein of sandstone running through the limestone."

A more accurate description is:

The route is at Motherwall, which is to the right of a prominant arch on a rock wall located across the creek and about 200 yards DOWN STREAM from Boulevard wall. Access is gained from the main trail by crossing a narrow meadow where the trail bends and finding one of many places to cross. When the water is high you may look upstream for a log to cross, and if you have good balance you might stay dry.
