Description 

This is the side of Trapper Dome that is readily seen the dam area. It is highlighted by a striking arete on the left end. The closer one travels to Trapper Dome the more obscure it becomes due to the forest. The South Face hosts some really incredible face climbing with a few cracks thrown in for good measure.


Getting There 

Park in one of the turn-outs mostly found on the right side of the road and head towards the granite. Takes anywhere from 2-4 minutes depending on the turnout. No real trail per se.

By this time he had also led "The Dark Side" (5.12 R/X) on Voodoo Dome, and he would go on to complete the amazing "Titanic" in The Needles with Tony Yaniro and Brett Maurer.
