DescriptionThe crux is probably near the bottom, but the overhang was the scene of great suffering when I was about 10. I had crawled deep into the recesses of the overhang to avoid the massive exposure! My impatient father (he was actually extremely patient) decided he'd waited long enough and started hauling on the rope. He would have succeeded in pulling me up, as he often did, except for the fact that the rope ran through the 3 inch slot at the edge of the roof. He pulled, I smashed my head, I cried out in pain and then in fear, and he pulled some more... eventually I made it around. Years later this became a fun part of our easy solo circuit.
Anyway, climb this if you dare. Exit the overhang on the left (looks like you could also exit right). There is a 2nd pitch that continues up to the right if you must summit...
LocationThis is the hand crack/offwidth/chimney/slab/roof just right of the Katzenjammer face. This is right at the beginning left side of the Trapps. When the cliff leaves the carriage road look up to the left, thar she blows.
Wlk off left after either pitch.
