Description Suggest change

The middle of this climbs somewhat like the middle of Mexican Crack. Start in the at the apex of the arete and immediately cut left onto the pedestal at the base of Pimple Tower using cams and long runners. Climb the obvious crack system starting on the right side of the bush at its bottom. About half way up the face, there is a small overlap where the crack dog-legs left about 6 feet and then up and right to the anchors

Location Suggest change

Starts on the arete but ends to the right of the old route called 'Pimple Tower'

Protection Suggest change

Small to medium nuts and cams up to #3 camalot. Lots of long runners to reduce rope drag and the start and again at the overlap.
