12-March-2012: Steve Larson leading Mousetrap.

Potential road closures in winter. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Drytool / modern mixed route on mostly good basalt with closely-spaced bolts (13 of them). It seemed hardest up the first couple bolts, and then another cruxy part about 2/3rds up.

Bolts/holds could be hard to see right after new snow.

Location 

30 feet left of the Itchy & Scratchy Show on the Unnamed Wall. Approach the Unnamed Wall via the usual way, turn left at Bingo World & the huge cave, pass The Thrill is Gone and walk 50-60 yards. The route is mostly on an off-vertical face with a small left-facing corner near the top.

Descend by rappel -- 70m rope preferable.

Protection 

13 draws. Belay is a solid 2-bolt anchor with chains & rings.

Good job bolting guys. All the clips are from good stances.

Very conservatively bolted. Watch for loose rock on the route, I saw some loose blocks that could take out your belayer.
