As is mentioned in the area description, this route is not much for a destination climb. That said, it is an enjoyable place for the newer climber to safely attempt a short section of offwidth (on TR of course). The first 40 feet involves an easy climb up a mild slope before reaching the beginning of the overhanging crack. One must combine several offwidth jams with face jugs to surmount the final crux section before reaching the anchors.


Park at the pullout for Crown Rock and walk on the main trail South. Look to your left (east) for a divergent trail after passing Crown Rock and before Pratt's Overhang. Follow this trail SE for another 50-60 yards (?), and the Alamo will come into view.


There are two bolts (maybe still the '50s eyebolts?), but both are showing signs of corrosion around the washers. It would be prudent to reinforce these with hand-sized gear in the crack to the climber's left of the bolts. The anchor station is accessed by a 4th class scramble around the right side of the Alamo followed by one or two 5th class moves to gain the summit, be careful on the downclimb when you're done.
