Description 

A good long route on semi-solid rock.

Steep and sustained, Pocket Full of Trundles starts on small, positive holds and a cool flake. The climbing quickly turns tricky, and surprises you with powerful crux. Find a nice rest around bolt two then continue on up about 15 feet to the route's redpoint crux just below a large positive pocket. Small deceiving holds through a mini bulge wear the weary climber out, keep truckin' to a decent rest or two then finish direct on the steep, pumpy face.

Long and continuous Pocket Full of Trundles is a trademark route and the second best warm-up for the area.

Protetcion 

Eight or Nine well spaced bolts to a backed up, chain anchor.

Location 

This is the second route in from the right side of the main face. Its just left of Something Must Break and just right of Stop That Train

This is a long and very fun route. the technical crux is near the beginning, but try not to pump out to the top. great pocket climbing to be had as well.

Definitely the best warm-up on the wall. Big holds, cool moves, pumpy.

This is a great route to build endurance and practice strategic use of rests. The crux is low and tricky, I'd have had trouble figuring it out without help from a friend who had already climbed it. It is bolted really well, but because the crux is low, a stick clip is a good idea, maybe even for the first two bolts.
After the second bolt, all the holds are good, and it is just a question of using rests wisely. There is a section about 3/4 the way up where there are a bunch of 2 and 3 finger pockets in a row that are a bit challenging and interesting. All in all, a great route.
