Description

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

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.

Protection

Bring ten quickdraws.

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
