Description Suggest change

An obvious line at the entrance to Area A plucked early by Mr. Litz. Begin on the left side of the incipient seam at a good hold and traverse up and right with the seam, immediately encountering difficulties. The holds improve, but the problem stays with you. When you reach the arete, climb to the top (a ~V2 by itself).

Location Suggest change

Public Execution is found easily if one starts at the Bierstadt Corridor and walks down valley for 20 yards, then walks directly south (uphill) towards the talus and the looming walls above. Public Execution is an obvious line on the west face of the largest boulder in its vicinity. Find the rising seam on the west face and you've got it.

Protection Suggest change

A few Organics would be helpful, so you don't have to drag them back and forth while you work it. It would also be wise not to fall off topping out.
