Description

Europithacus begins just to left of the main roof system on TBB and left of the two long, two pitch routes. It starts up a low angle ramp behind a tree and right off the trail. A variation start exists 10 ft left that fires up a thin finger tips crack. Either start converges where the ramp meets the overhanging face at about 30 ft. Negotiate this by neat trick, protected by two blots, and head up via 5.9/5.10 climbing on good solid SSV granite. I'd give it a star for the 5.11 trick over the leaning face. Good warm-up route.

Protection

QD only. This route shares an anchor with the right hand variation of The Bruise Collector and offers an easy way to top rope TBC. At about 75 ft in length the route needs 10 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

A total sandbag at 5.11b. More like 5.12a. I had climbed at the Trojan Bunny Buttress for the first time in Summer 2001. I returned in May-June 2002, with Blake Treadway only to find that the bolts on this route had been removed. After replacing the bolts, we made the first ascent of a 3 bolt direct start (5.11d) that is downhill & left of the easy start. May 10, 2017
