A look own the first pitch of "Head Wound"
P1: (5.7) Climbs another channel just to the right of massive black waterstreak in the channel of Righteous Babe. A lot of loose rock, I can only wonder how this route got it's name. Considering it finishes at the double anchor I suggest just sticking to Righteous Babe's first pitch, it's better.
P2: (5.9) A great pitch, best finish from the dual anchors of the three choices you have. From the anchor climb right, following the bolt line to a vertical section. A couple of fun moves pull you onto the wall where it eases up a bit. The end holds one more surprise, best moves of the route.
I can't be definitive about the length. I know a 60 meter gets you down with room to spare. Can't speak to a 50m, so I called it at 90 feet per pitch.
Starts in a channel about 10 feet right of the channel with the dark watermark where Righteous Babe starts.
From the first anchors go right.
Well bolted. Take 9 draws plus gear for the anchors. Mussy hooks at the first anchor, sport shuts at the top.

First pitch anchor is actually a pair of Fixe sport anchors. Second pitch anchors are Fixe Super Shuts.
Rock quality may have cleaned up some. We didn't notice much loose rock as of 13 August 2009. Cheers.

Really solid belay anchors at the top of P1 and P2. The second pitch was really nice. It had a few spicy moments that were fun to lead. The view from the top was excellent. I hung from a big jugger hold on the top rim and looked all around - great exposure!

The anchors on top of pitch 2 are loose. They were spinning, use caution.
