Description

Pitch 1 is better than it looks. Climb the corner to first overhang and exit left onto the face. The crux is on the face after stepping out from corner, and it protects well. Climb face to a comfortable belay at a left facing corner. (75 ft).

Pitch 2 is a beautiful line. Follow ceilings right until just below a scary looking block. Airy and gorgeous. Only a little lichen at the end makes the exit (left of the jutting block) exciting. This should get cleaned off with time. (60 ft).

Highly recommended!

Location

Far end of the Near Trapps, 20 feet right of the start to Main Line.

Begin on a boulder pile with laurel bushes, at a big right-facing corner capped by an overhang. It can look a little overgrown.
Descend by a 5-10 minute walk off down Smede's Cove trail, to climbers' left.

Protection

All sorts of cams. I would recommend a 4' sling in the corner before heading out onto the face. At the top out, the belay tree (no anchors) was far back, so set up communication system with your second before heading up.
