Description [Suggest Change]

Amazon is the right-facing corner at the right side of the cliff. Clamber up as for Houston S, clipping its first 2 bolts, but continue up the corner to a small roof. You can reach over and clip more of the Houston S bolts if you want to, but you're still likely to want to place a few pieces of gear too.
There's a 2-bolt anchor just to the right under the roof. Most will stop here rather than topping out by pulling the roof. If you stop at the anchor, it's 5.8. If you pull through the roof (as for the full original route), the roof is the crux, and is rated 5.9.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the right-facing corner at the far right of the crag.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Nuts and cams to 2". You will clip 2-5 of the Houston S bolts as well.
