DescriptionSee the photo of Triceratops (which is just to the right of this route), where T-Rect can be seen on the left-hand side of the photo.
T-Rect first runs left and then enters a small runnel (seen at the top left of the above-referenced photo) that veers upwards and right. Stay in the runnel and climb right and upward (crux) for a climb that is probably rated around 5.7 or 5.8. Step left and upwards out of the runnel to avoid the crux for a climb that is probably rated around 5.6 or 5.7. There is a long run-out between the 2nd and 3rd bolts with potential for a groundfall. This section of the climb is fairly easy (5.6 or 5.7), however, and may be protectable using small cams. T-Rect has its own anchors (two bolts with hangers and twist-links), which are separated from those of Triceratops by about 35 horizontal feet.
Like Triceratops, T-Rect is about 80 feet in length and has about 5 bolts."
