Description 

"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.

Location 

Located left of "Aqua Negro" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider" on the east wall of The Canyon. Begin 6 ft. left of "Aqua Negro, " right where the base of the canyon slopes downhill.

Protection 

10 bolts & 3 bolt anchor with a mass of chains. Shares a 1st bolt with "Itsy Bitsy Spider." There is a direct start up the initial slab which features 3 bolts.

Why is this listed as 'Trad?' Sounds like it is fully bolted.
