Description Suggest change

Houston S is fun and cleaner than most at John's Wall. The start is shared with a mixed bolted/trad line (Amazon). There's a thin crux between the 2nd and 3rd bolt, which is harder for short people. Angle left on crimpy basalt climbing. The anchor is shared with Easter Rising. Rated 5.8 in the old guide.

Location Suggest change

Right side of John's Wall.

5(?) bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Optional #0.5 or #0.75 cam or tricam.
