Tom climbing Cal Trop.


The crux is on the lower half of the climb. Climb to the left side of the bolt line. The climbing gets eaiser at the top.

Eds. note two entries for this route have been combined into one entry to avoid problems with duplication.


This route is located between #53 and #54 in the The Palace Guide or one route climber's left of Creepy.

This lies in between Flail and Creepy.


4 bolts to chains.

This is a good warm up route, but the other three 5.9s in this area are better for warming up, IMO, because Cal Trop is so short.
