|Trashcan Rock - West Face

This was a fun easy route. Start up a crack splitting a rib just right of the Eyesore chimney. Place your 3.5 friend in a crack to your left. Step on a little dike around the corner with a big crack. The move is easy but a fall here may land you on a slabby ledge. If nervous you may want to place your number 4 friend in the crack (slightly blind) before turning the corner. Follow this crack up to the cap rock. This is a good belay spot to watch your second. Otherwise step over the cap rock and your done, except for the descent which is slightly more exciting then other sections of the rock.
This route is just right of Eyesore, the last route on the west side. For the descent scramble northeast then go northwest up a slab. From here continue with the usual descents.
Light rack, with emphasis on medium to large pieces.
