Climbs the center of the west face of Tierra Incognito via a left-facing corner to right-slanting crack system. The rock is decent, but the climbing is not especially memorable.

the rock was so horrible on the FA...we aided section of it.....loose plates the size of Texas.........(It's a striking line..).
It was called Trick of the Tail because we had some much rope drag....Later came back and free climbed the route at a modest rating.....
It's only had a few ascents.....and there are reasons for this.. Aug 23, 2013
