Description

Likely the most common 'first 5.12' for many at Trout. (though by no means the easiest tick...) Rattly fingers/liebacking to a cruxy transition into fingers gets you to the rest. From there, stemming and fingerlocks will take you up to the crux stemming sequence. Finish with 40+ feet of steep, juggy, and spectacular 5.10 climbing to the chains. This is one of the few slightly contrived lines at the crag with Gold Rush so close at hand through much of the hard climbing.

It's worth noting that many have awkward experiences the first time they climb to the chains. The chains are very far out to the left of the upper dihedral and if you stem up to the same level as the chains, you might be able to clip them from an ok, but exciting stance in the corner. The sequence their location was intended to force follows a horizontal out to the left arete and up the arete. It is exposed, fantastic, and a much better option.

Location

The crack to the right of Gold Rush

Protection

Lots of thin gear up to BD .75. Small and medium stoppers protect the crux moves well if you can figure out how to hang out and place them.
Best continuous quality for a 12- at Trout (that I've done so far). Med/Sm nuts are solid around the pod and/or lots of yellow Aliens/TCU's or equivalent (4-5) are nice. Cool and airy finish! Jun 2, 2013
