Renee finding the 5.5 way up Short and Sassy.
|A portion of Near Trapps has been closed to climbing MORE INFO >>>|
A fun zig-zag crack with a fitting name. The Swain guide calls this a 5.5, but I'd say it's a bit more technical than that. Climb the crack left, then turn right at the crux (where the crack heads right). Either climb the face on the left or the wide crack on the right, then head up to the tree.
All the way at the end of the Near Trapps, at a short face. It is the first face you come to when hiking down from the end, or the last face before the end of the cliff.
Standard Gunks rack to 3", tree rap anchor at the top.

I think the "Sassy" in this route's name is for the sassafras tree that gets in the way as you climb past it.
