"Pick Pocket" follows a left leaning line of bolts up a featured slab and pockets to a bulge. Four bolts protect the initial slab and bulge. Aim for a large polished grey cobble just above the bulge and three bolts that provide a TR anchor for the slab below. Continue up left of the anchor past large inclusions and pockets which facilitate pulling through a series of three bulges with large featured inclusions and pockets. Six more bolts lead to runout, but easy face climbing to the anchor. Shares an anchor with "Tethys" & "Middle Earth," on the northwest shoulder of the Elephant's Head.

The route is not bolted like a typical sport route. There is wide spacing between some bolts. If you check many of the face climbs at Suicide Rock or Joshua Tree they are listed as trad routes, due to bolt spacing. No gear other than quickdraws is necessary.
Twelve bolts in 160 feet, you do the math.
