Description

Approach the first clip from the left, move up to the second bolt, then angle leftward and up on powerful and funky moves to the anchors. It will either feel trivial or impossible, depending on your level of fatigue.

Location

"Rope Trick" skirts the right side of the blocky roofs that "Sinister Minister" tackles directly.

Protection

Four bolts to a two bolt anchor.

First bolt is just out of reach of a good clipping stance, with a possible nasty fall onto a cactus... bring a stick clip if you are short! Oct 10, 2013

I think this route is 11a/b based on pump factor. I thought this was a really fun route, steep and juggie dougie. Fun! Jan 15, 2012

For the guidebook authors I want to mention that Rope Trick was my costly little gem, bolted just after Guy put in the Sinister Minister top rope anchor. Guy named Rope Trick too. I'll get hooks on this soon because this route has an abundance of steep. Maybe new bolts too.

History thing: while taking a break from drilling this cute little runt-route, I walked over to check on another potential project and was surprised to meet Dave and Ernie, who had already gotten on it. Ernie told me recently that I told them how the Guy who owned the drill was only interested in thirty foot routes. After I went back to RT, they we're high-five'n it because they beat me to Winter Warmer, the best route at Table! Jan 14, 2008
