Description 

The grungy start of Towelhead gives way to solid climbing above. The initial difficulties begin after clipping the first bolt and involve a blind reach...enough said. Personally, I thought that the start could be cleaned up considerably, too much of what you are required to stand on looks as though it could bust off in a heart beat. The route still needs a bit of brushing, but this should not deter anyone from climbing it - it will clean up nicely after a bit of traffic.

Location 

Towelhead is the fifth route from the left and starts off the ramp.

Protection 

Seven draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
