Description [Suggest Change]

Sometimes bigger is better. But with this route you get a whole lot of action in a small package. This little tweeker starts on small, technical pockets and makes its way to a roof. Hope you saved your stamina, cause getting up and over the blocky brain roof can be pretty exhausting. Grab a hold up high with your right hand. Hold it tight and don't let go. Pull and yank yourself up and over as hard as you can until you find a secret hold behind the roof. Fall off and try, try again. Swing up and over to a fabulous, sporty finish that might have you wanting a cheese sandwhich.

Location [Suggest Change]

Trouser Trout is the the last route on the very right hand side of the Fish Bowl Wall. Be careful how you tread on the belay platform.

A fun route - the lower part is relatively easy (10d seems about right, except for 1-2 thinner moves around 11a), and for the most part technical. Fun little pockets and fun to read, classic Spearfish.

The roof - it entirely depends on your general opinion on roofs. I like roofs and I have done roofs before. Therefore I quite liked that one - I didn't think the sequence is actually that hard, but not that easy to read on the spot. It's a bit bouldery and physical, so get ready.

For my part, I think it's worth doing just for the roof above, with fun extra climbing below that. Jul 30, 2017
