Description 

Average Size Person's Perspective: A fine route on limestone pods and shelves. The crux for most is the right step and clip after the lower angle section but it differs for other people. The route starts steep then mellows into easy climbing before moving right through a slight bulge (and great hand jam) to the rap rings, rings can be tricky to clip.

Little Person's Perspective: Great route, with a pumpy start that transitions into great crimps up a column. The obvious crux is at the sloppy vertical hand jams just below the chains, which necessitate an awkward, scary reach.

Location 

The Scorched Earth trail heads up then forks just before the wall. Take the left fork and it will be the first climb you encounter at the wall, to the right of a tree/bush. There is one obvious belay station to the right, which serves Pretty Polly.

Protection 

Maybe bolts 9?
