See 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."


This is left of Triceratops.


4 bolts & 2 bolt anchor. A small rack of trad gear may find use in a horizontal crack located about mid-way between the 2nd and 3rd bolts (small C4s or C3s?).

Eds. #0.75 and #1 Camalot fit this slot.

There are actually only 4 bolts on the route and the horizontal crack is fairly shallow, but a #0.75 Camalot would go nicely in it. Jun 29, 2009
This climb is very well protected with a green Camalot in the horizontal crack. Even without it, the moves are solid and easy. No need for an R rating here. Jul 13, 2009

5.7+ 4 bolts to its own anchor with rap links. #0.75 or #1 Camalot will work nicely in the horizontal crack between the 2nd & 3rd bolts. Aug 25, 2009

I felt this was a lot of 5.5 friction climbing with a short 5.7 crux. Bolts were well spaced. I didn't feel the distance between bolts 2 and 3 was unreasonable as the climbing was easy, but if you fell you probably would hit the ground. Oct 4, 2009
