Description

Follow 5 bolts of excellent climbing in an obtuse dihedral, to a slightly run-out but cruiser and extremely well-featured face with 3 more bolts. This pitch recently had 4 bolts added to it (with permission of the FA), particularly to make the upper face more manageable. Good alternative if Warpath or Warpaint are occupied.

"Trail of Tears" also has a second pitch that clocks in at mid-5.11. Hopefully the 2nd pitch will get more traffic now as well...just make sure to ignore the "false" anchor (see comments section).

Protection

8 bolts, chain anchor.

Location

Right side of a small alcove, just before a very large boulder.

The second pitch has some pretty fun climbing and is worth checking out. A little run out but all the clipping holds are good. Go left at the "false anchor" (has one good bolt and one ripped about an inch out the wall) past one bolt then around the corner to the solid anchor. Aug 31, 2015
