Decoding the sequence on the headwall.

Description 

Begin climbing up a wide smooth crack-like feature with large cobbles and pockets. Climb to a high first bolt above the depression and continue up the apron to the base of the headwall. Move up and left on the ramp dto nice pockets on the steep bulging headwall. Climb the bulging headwall on shallow pockets and exciting features. Once above the bulge move up the featured slab to the arête. Gain the broad arête and move up and left to the anchor.dg

Location 

Begin at the narrowest portion of the corridor below a left leaning crack-like feature. The start is 15 feet downhill from the large bush below a large depression in the east wall of the Corridor.

Protection 

12 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor.

As is typical of Texas Canyon holds break and routes continue to evolve. Recently, a large inclusion which provided a very positive handhold, at the crux, broke and has left a shallow divot thus making "Bilbo Surfs Galveston" a notch harder.
