Description Suggest change

Wheel of Fortune is the third route from the right on Tarot Wall. From the talus approach, walk left, past the low roof band that has the routes The Hanged Man and The Horse. Wheel of Fortune starts at the left edge of this roof, just left of The Horse, and 15' right of The Tower.

Pull over a small overhang to the first bolt. Moderate climbing leads slightly right past two small left facing corners. Turn the arête onto the face. Make the crux move up and left to get established on the upper face. Sneak left around the arête for a move, and then easy climbing up the arête to the anchors.

Wheel of Fortune is the best of the 4 climbs I did on Avalon this day (the others were The Tower, The Fool, and The Hanged Man).

Protection Suggest change

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with rings. The first 5 bolts aren't necessary, since there is good gear nearby.
