A somewhat pumpy and sustained mixed route that will test your balance and footwork.

Pitch 1: Climb a series of horizontals with good gear to a bolt. pull through the bolt (crux move) into the obvious handcrack. Climb the crack to the top trending left over the bulge as the crack runs out (watch the loose blocks on the right). Delicate moves lead you to a ramp, second bolt and rest. Fun face moves and one more bolt will gain the two bolt anchor. *Gear is possible between the last two bolts on the right. (90’)


The route starts near the end of the upper tier, approximately 20’ to the right of Perdito. A single bolt roughly 20’ off the ground marks the start.

Rappel the route from the two bolt anchor


Standard Rack and Draws with cams up to size #1.

This is a very good climb. Wonderful face moves at the top, beautiful handrail of a crack, and bolts just where you want them. The crux is so satisfying. Oct 17, 2017

Very cool route. Felt like I was sport climbing, then trad... then a punchy sport finish. Gaining the crack is interesting. Quite dirty when I climbed it. Sep 25, 2017
Outstanding route! The bolts are only where you need them and the gear is solid. The combination of balancy face moves, a super fun crack, and tricky almost-slab climbing up high with a stunning view of the Saco make Trepidation a truly memorable ascent. Make sure to jump in the river afterwards for a perfect day out. Well done Grammy! Aug 28, 2012
