Sean Donahue on the steep pockets of 'Head'...


Hard pulls off of a left then a right 2 finger pocket that have been "helped" in some way, and a final hard move off of a sidepull undercling with the left hand to a juggy rail. Short and to the point.


Two routes right of Liposuction or two routes left of Body Wax.


4 bolts, no anchor.

I just find it strange that this and one other route in the area were singled out by Jeff as there are surely countless other routes out there that are chipped and quite possibly less fun, not to mention if you look at what he's posted it seems as though he has never been to Texas to climb much less Riemer's so how would he even know, maybe I'm full of it and don't know how to identify a drilled pocket from a natural one.
