Minesh Bacrania messing with Texas.

Description 

The easiest route at the cliff, but still exciting. Obtain the top of a short column, then layback up to the base of "Texas". The second layback section (up to the right and over) is the crux of the route.


Location 

A more or less obvious flake ~20ft up, roughly resembling the bottom part of the State of Texas, marks the start of the route. Belay from the top and walk off (to the left or right).


Protection 

No bolts, no anchor. Standard light trad rack (set of nuts, set of cams, and draws).
