|The two eyebolts are on the east face, more than a few feet down from the western edge of the top of the rock, so there'll probably be some drag when pulling ropes after rappelling off the overhanging west side.|

|Yes, you will get big time rope drag pulling your rope to the west. But, it wil come; just use a little elbow grease.|

There are two sets of bolts now:
1 - just at the top of the southern part of the slab, the obvious crack will take you to them. They've seen some weathering. This is probably 5.5 climbing.
2 - from those bolts mentioned above, head north/up the rock on some 5.4 moves following the crack again. The massive eye-bolts are just east of the top, be careful getting down to them. You could also solo up the 5.6ish slab to get here, starting by the tree.
Note - Bring larger carabiners, my black diamond positrons did not open wide enough for the eye-bolts.
The Alamo is about 250 yds SE from crown rock, directly E of an overhung 50' wall next to the trail with a tree growing in the top of it.
