Description Suggest change

Commando is a less trafficked, not very well known climb just right of the classic "Graveyard Waltz" and "Running Man". Commando is a slightly more serious route than the classics next to it, and is a little heady. For the climb, begin on top of the boulder creating the corridor of running man at a bolt. It's best to not clip the first bolt, and stick-clip the 2nd (or 3rd if you want to feel safe, failing to clip the 3rd will likely cause you to deck). 

Start by climbing the thin wall, the crux is right off the ground so punch it! A decent stance allows a brief shake after the crux before firing into the rest of the climb, the rest is a bit easier, it feels a bit like graveyard waltz but is chossy and definitely needs to clean up with time. Overall 9 bolts lead to an open shut anchor with 2 older bolts and 1 newer one.
