Description Suggest change

This was named after the album by the amazing and legendary Tom Waits....

The leftmost of the three main lines, Frank's Wild Years climbs a crack just left of the prow to a pumpy rising hand traverse. This leads to a cramped rest in the corner, and then the crux -- a few campus moves on jugs. There is an unclippable fixed wire here that is designed to keep the rope out of the crack -- please do not remove it. Above this a no hands rest preceeds a final awkward lieback up slightly lower quality rock to a bolted anchor.

Protection Suggest change

Double set of cams, wires, and a very small cam (blue Alien was almost too big) protects the crux well.
