Start 3 feet to the right of Sand Box Corner - climb straight up the face through the "pockmark".

There is no good pro on this route. Calling it anything other than a TR route is ridiculous.

Also, this is not 5.4. It is 5.7.

The first rule on MP is don't be a jerk. If you think something should be changed then just ask politely. We are willing to update climbs, so you don't need to act like a spoiled 10 year old. I updated this climb based on your first comment, so stop flaming the site.
I find it interesting that you are so obsessed with these 5.4-5.6 climbs that only are usually only used by beginners.. It's 5.4, Dude.. Get over it!
I have contributed 23 climbing areas and 321 climbs to MP, so it would be nice if you could afford me a mistake once in awhile..
I see you have contributed just 4 climbs in Texas..

Comment after recent revision--

This is a 5.7 in two different guidebooks. 5.4 Sandbox Corner is much easier.

Good intro to harder face climbing at GF, and many people's first GF 5.7 because classes like to set up this one and the Corner.
