Description Suggest change

The plaque at the base identifies this route, it is approximately 50 yards to the right of where the west trail meets the wall. A loose (welcome to the desert) bouldery start gets your attention before standing on a ledge that will put you into a nice thin hands crack. The crack slowly opens up to hands, and toward the top where it gets to that bigger than hands, smaller than fists size, some face holds appear to save the day. This was a fun route, though I think the bouldery start scare people. A puppy crawl in from the side can side step the looseness. Again, it's great route.

Protection Suggest change

A wide array of protection ranging from #1 to #3.5 Camalot exist. It seems about 5 of the #1s is the max you will need of any given piece, with only 2 of the #3.5. A small TCU can protect the boulder problem start, but it would likely blow out if anyone bigger than Tom Thumb whipped on it.
