Description Suggest change

Foxtrot is another not so hidden gem on the West Ridge. It looks like a crack, but does not climb like a crack. First off, the pro is good over the roof, but pumpy to place. Once through the sketchy corner and over the roof, you end up doing these pinch moves, layaways, I dyno'ed to get through the crux and into the flare. This is short but sweet...Eldo crack climbing at its best.

[The gear is adequate but very pumpy to place (and hard to see at the crux) with a long fall potential at the crux move.]

Once on the upper slab, it [used to be] really dicey getting over to the anchor above Parallels.... Per Joseph Crotty: now there is a 2 bolt anchor.

Protection Suggest change

Small to medium nuts, 0.4"-1.25" cams for the main route, 0.5"+2" cams to get to the 2 bolt anchor on top of Crazy Fingers ~7' to the right.

Per Joseph Crotty: now there is a 2 bolt anchor.
