Description

Fear and Trembling is located on the southeast half of Balanced Rock Wall on the face just to the right of New Box and Mr. Neutron. The start of the climb is the crux. Use small holds and smearing to get up to easier climbing. The corner to the left is off. Once you get up to the large ledge continue to the top by either using the corner or climb straight up the center of the upper face (5.10d).

Give the 5.10d finish through the flaring crack on the upper wall. Mar 5, 2010

Damn, that upper section is radical! The moves are a bit long, but good. Feels like solid 5.10d moves for sure. Good addition to this good route. Too bad the pro isn't really there. May 15, 2011

This isn't a bad little climb (not counting the 5.11 bit at the top) but I sure think it is way over rated at 5.9. The crux/start is a bit tricky to suss out but it can be done correctly (nothing "off route") at about 5.7 and nothing after the crux seems tougher than 5.7. I have watched people use 5.9 moves to get the crux but they seem more interested in finding marginal hand holds than using some of the nice dancing foot moves to get it done. Just a thought...
