Description(1) Follow a steep crack system up about 15 feet and then trend right to the bolted anchor (about 55 feet).
(2) Climb the face a little to the right of the two bolts but finish a little left of the right weakness at the top of the formation (about 110 feet--see comment below). There is a bolted anchor and chains at the end of the pitch.
LocationWalk up the talus almost to the notch which drops off to the east face of the Tridents. Turn east and walk slightly uphill to the west face of the formation. Follow the rock downhill to where it drops off about 10 feet. The climb starts in the shallow right facing crack system just right of the drop. There is a sawed stump of a dead tree near the base of the climb.
The top of the climb finishes on the rectangular block shown on the beta picture previously posted. The view of Upper La Cueva Canyon from this belay is quite good.
