Description Suggest change

Named AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) because a hard-core sport climber claimed he got nose bleeds and headaches from being two pitches up. You can avoid AMS by doing it in a single pitch and either runnering the mid-way anchor with a long sling or by clipping the first bolt on the headwall and then unclipping the anchor. Fun jug haul on steep rock. The first half to the mid-way anchor is mungy 5.8, but it's worth it for the fun climbing above.

Location Suggest change

The second route from the left side of the headwall. Shares an anchor with Poligrip. See the
Headwall routes.

Protection Suggest change

Bolts. About 11, depending on if you clip and what you skip (possible to skip on lower section and mid-way anchor).
