Charlie taking the first stab
This line is the crack that splits Trask's Rock right up the middle. It's easy enough to get to the bottom of the crack on top of the lower block, but then hand holds and foot holds peter out up to a very challenging blank face.
The rock is also extremely polished and smooth, making even the stickiest shoes slip off it. It could probably be freed at 5.12 or a hard 5.11.
An alternate start is to come up and work your way up the underclings just to the right of the crack. At the top of the underclings is a bomber sloper that if you were Chris Sharma you might be able to hang from and pull yourself up on.
Either way, it's a good time and a fun challenge.
Trask's Rock on the shore of Witherle Woods.
Park at the backshore and start circumnavigating the peninsula. It's a 10 minute walk.
Nuts = awesome. A couple small cams help too.
lots of gear popped in to get the aid ascent
