Climb the steep slab in a direct line to the anchor. Good rock, classic route.


In the middle of the Stealth Wall, this is the bolted slab framed by an arching crack on each side.


Bolts, 2-bolt anchor. Rap or lower.

Doesn't look 5.11 to me, has anybody climbing in AZ to compare? I know we can be a little soft on ratings here.

11a is the traditional rating for this, but it is more in the 10+ range. It may have been harder at some point, but our routes in Missouri tend to change yearly as hold break off, sometimes getting harder, sometimes getting easier. Also, a small number of Trapper's routes are known to be a bit fluffy.

A) How can you look at a picture and tell if it's 11a or not? You can't. And B) Tucson is NOT known to have soft ratings. In actuality, it's known to be quite stiff compared to most areas.

You took the comment wrong miss Jennifer, when I said we can be a little soft on ratings I meant we're pretty well know in these parts for rating a 5.10 as a 5.9 thus being soft or going on the lower end.

The first part of the statement was meant to be slightly funny, I have pictures of me on a v0 that look like I'm on a v12, clearly you can't grade a climb from a picture :)

This climb is awesome. I believe that the anchors, unfortunately, could have been placed about 6 feet lower....possibly at the lip of the ledge you gain to stand on and clip...this would eliminate only one move, would reduce the rope drag, and the climber could avoid all of the loose rock that currently surrounds the anchor. Time for a discussion? Next time I do this one I will be taking a few moments to clean up the base as well, to make for a more pleasant belay experience. Thanks for bolting this awesome climb!
