Description Suggest change

This was a wonderful find on the Eldo obscure tour. It's really a series of variations on The Bulge, with four short, high-quality pitches. We shared belays with The Bulge the whole way -- where The Bulge goes right each pitch, this route goes left. We don't think we did the third pitch right -- the guidebook says to belay in a small, red, right-facing corner and to climb straight up from an "alcove." We could see a small alcove about 10 feet left of the second belay on The Bulge, but there didn't seem to be any corner. That's probably where you're supposed to belay. We diagonaled up and left from The Bulge belay, climbing over a bulge with decent pro at about 5.10. The rest of the route matches the guidebook description nicely. Go do it!
