A portion of Near Trapps has been closed to climbing MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A fun climb that follows a right-leaning crack on the side of a massive boulder. Step up onto the medium-sized boulders on the right and step left into the crack. Follow the crack until you step around to easier climbing on the face to the left, near the remains of a bush.

A tree with slings on it is your rappel station.


Location 

Near the end of the Near Trapps, look for a big pillar, the Void block, leaning against the cliff. Void Where Inhibited climbs over the low roof that runs across the front of the block, and a crack splits up its right-facing aspect; this is the route Outsiders.


Protection 

Trad - Chockstone rap anchor at the top.

I was so pumped when I did this that I don't remember how nice it was. My partner, who led it, had a lot of fun all the way up. She climbed through the bush and I stepped left around it.

This is route protects easily and well, the moves are interesting, and if you step left to the face at the obvious break near the dead bush, it is 5.7. It is well worth doing if you are in the area. We just put a new red sling on the belay tree a week ago.

This route is G all the way up. It's also pretty easy for 5.8. It's a very nice route, and often overlooked (often hidden by the tree at its base, actually).

Williams' new Near Trapps guide calls this a 5.7. Stiff at the grade, but the pro just sinks in all the way up.

super fun and really easy to protect. First pitch might be a nice climb for someone looking to break into the grade.

I just did this today. I think the bush is definitely dead. I see where it probably once was on the right crack. There is one final move before topping out the cracks that probably makes this 5.7+ to 5.8.
