Come expecting 40' of beautiful, BD 0.5 splitter to a funky crack switch to the left. (somewhat up to the climber's discretion, I found it easiest to switch when my feet were on the last large edge in the original crack, but others traverse left higher up) Once established in the left crack, enjoy engaging finger locks and face moves to the chains.


This is the prominent rattly finger/ringlock splitter a couple lines right of Bushwhacker.


Rumor has it that metolius cams don't fit as well as BD ones. (oranges are tipped out and reds are over cammed) I was stoked to have 4-5 0.5s, 2 0.75s and Doubles of BD 0 C3-0.3 C4 for the upper crack.

Maximum stars for the grade at Trout!

There are two options for finishing
You can skirt left to the Steelhead anchor, which gives you a nice TR for that climb, or you can head up and right. Going up is another 15 ft of high quality face climbing protected by a finger sized cam, so make sure you have one left. If you don't have one going left would be a reasonable idea.
