Description Suggest change

As you approach Lizard Head Wall, this climb is the obvious vegetated splitter hand crack located on the east side of the wall. Start in the bushes on a right slanting ledge that gains a flaring splitter crack. Fire up this, surmounting the large foliage to a beautiful hands splitter. Continue following this crack until it trends left and runs out. Make a step left into a short dihedral with......you guessed it......great hands again. Follow this to a bolted anchor. A 60m rope will just reach the ground - be sure to tie stoppers before lowering/rapping. 

Protection Suggest change

Protection to 2" with extra hand size pieces. Bolt and chains anchor at the top.
