SW Face Left (Trespassers Wall) Rock Climbing
Listen to the crunchy feet to judge your friction ...
This warm place on a chilly afternoon provides delicate climbing up orange rock.
Althought the routes here are bolted they are not sport climbs and have a very runout feel to them. The climbing is characterised by steep smearing with the occasional small flakes. Composure is a requirement.
Descent: Facing the rock, walk down slabs to the left to a final steep 15 foot section which can either be down-climbed or, if composed, walked off.
Park at Echo Rock Parking Lot and walk under the EBGBs Boulder and around the right-hand side of Echo Rock past TS Special. Follow the trail across open desert heading towards the SW Face of Little Hunk, just before reaching this face cut to the right and scramble through bushes and over boulders to rach the base of the wall (faint trail).

This route is on the left of the face. It is identified by a flake at the base of the climb (about 20 feet up, above an easy slab).Head up to the flake and climb its righthand crack to the top of the flake. Steep tricky face moves lead to easy runout cruising. Moving from the final bolt is the crux and will make you stop and think.A good introduction to the face....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
