Description

Vapor Trail begins off the ground as the second route to the right of the ugly looking, trad grunge on the left side of the Red Slab. This is not a beginner's climb. While the climbing never gets harder than 5.9, all of the bolts feel spacey. The climbing is also a bit devious being filled with underclings, side pulls, and continuously sloping feet. Nonetheless, the climbing is great for the grade and worth all of two stars. Vapor Trail shares its anchor with Bumblies for Breakfast (5.10a) and will set up a good top rope for both climbs.

Protection

QDs only. This 85 foot route needs only six draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
