Description Suggest change

Classic pumpy sport route climbs directly out of the drink. Reach the Escape from Alcatraz pedastal via rock hopping across river, or access the right side of wall and boulder again left. Climbing directly left from the pedestal, clip traversing bolt with runner or double runner (or unclip later). Now, climb the past the corner and up into the thuggish face. The crux comes near the top after the pump is well settled into the forearms. Great moves, rock and fun!

Protection Suggest change

Seven or eight bolts to two bolt anchor from the bolt anchor on the pedastal below Escape From Alcatraz. It is listed as 'R' in guide, but perhaps bolt was added, for there were no sizable run-outs as of late.
