"Pick A Pocket" follows a left leaning line of bolts up a featured slab and pockets to a bulge. Four bolts protect the initial slab and bulge. Aim for a large polished grey cobble just above the bulge. Continue up left past three large inclusions and pockets which facilitate pulling through a series of three bulges with large, featured, inclusions and pockets. In terms of route finding, when in doubt go left. Six more bolts lead to an obvious, but committing crux, and the anchor equipped with Mussy Hooks.
