Comments: Underrated. Albeit short, one of the better 11s in the park. Also a Ben Moon route?

Comments: I was told this route doesn't get much attention. Not sure why. I found it to be one of the funnest low 11s in the park. Although B1 and 2 might look a bit spaced, both crux moves are with a bolt at your chest or just below. Recommended.

Comments: Is this still the Club Mex wall? Thought The Sword was on the opposite wall facing Club Mex.

Comments: Great movement on quality golden rock. Anyone know what the extension is? I saw bolts continue up into fun looking mini-tufa features but couldn't spot a second anchor. I really didn't look that hard though.

Comments: I thought the first few bolts locations were fine and yes, the upper run out was serious. Definitely choose your holds wisely.

Comments: I'll agree, there's an upper and lower crux. I thought the lower was more balancy and harder to onsight and the upper was reachy and slightly strenuous, but more straight forward. Great route!

Comments: The guidebook calls this one of the toughest 5.10s on the Main Wall. I found it to be less challenging than U1 and Landing a Monster. YMMV.

Comments: I thought the traverse and mantle were easier than the sustained thin jamming above. Cool route.

Comments: Agree with the comments above. The section between the lower and upper anchor involved some rock climbing above your last piece.

Comments: Agree with Jan, the new middle crux has improved the overall quality of Trundle Trophy. I'd climbed this route 20+ times prior and was so confused when I got to this new move. Very fun though.

Comments: Only did P1 as we were pressed for time. Some notes: Andy's rack notes above are good, however I brought a set of brass nuts and didn't place any. I also had a full set of Stoppers and DMM alloy offsets. The offsets were very useful. I cam hooked twice, more for the experience. Not mandatory. Perhaps those spots are where the brass would come in handy. A fun aid outing, for sure.

Comments: We climbed the route with another party, joined ropes and made one double rope rappel to the south gully.

Comments: We did this as one pitch with a 70m rope as well. We didn't have to simul, I just climbed up 4' to the ledge. This thing is every inch of 70m if you do it as one pitch. We rappeled it in two raps but had to downclimb that same 4'. Be careful if doing this as the rope does pop out of your device before terra firma.


Location: OR : Central Oregon : Steins Pillar : NE Face (5.8 C2 or 5.11a) (5.8 C2)

Comments: P1 - 5.9 (one move)
P2 - 5.7 C2F
P3 - 5.4 C2F
P4 - 5.8 C2F
P5 - 5.9 C2F

I placed a purple C4 twice, three nut placements (small-medium). Lots of tie-offs and quick draws. We made a stick clip but never used it. We easily linked P4 and 5. Rappeled as described above. This worked fine, but the summit anchor is a ways back from the edge, therefore there's a lot of friction. Very hard to pull the ropes.

Comments: 5.9+ is a pretty heavy sandbag. We rappelled from the top of P2 to the ground with a 70m rope. Doubt this would work with a 60m rope.
