Description

This is an overlooked problem right on the trail with some fun, if awkward, climbing. The route climbs the overhung left-hand arete of the face on the Trailside boulder that faces downhill towards the Method boulder (the face with the tilted, rising boulder under it). From two good edges low on the left arete, make a hard move with poor feet to a decent edge on the face, then work up on edges and slopers to a challenging topout on slopers and crystals at the apex of the boulder. The landing for the topout is awkward because of the boulder directly underneath you and unfortunately this detracts from the quality of the problem, but it's a good one to try when you're tired of the others in the area.

Location

The Trailside boulder is just a few feet up the hill from the Method boulder. It's the boulder with the problem 'No One Knows' on the main face. Tribute climbs the left-hand arete of the overhung face with the large tilted boulder underneath it that faces downhill toward the Method boulder.

Protection

Pads and a spot for the awkward landing.

Hard, awkward and somewhat dabby. More like half a star because a climb has to be really bad for me to give it the bomb. Oct 3, 2015
