Description

Tremendous Trifles is the first route encountered moving up the scree-covered slope past Wind Machine. The Eldo-esque pitch is the right-most bolted line of the three final routes on the West Sector plates.

Start off the slope at a bolt left of a 2' x 3' block wedged on a ledge. Angle right and up (5.10b) to the sixth bolt (medium length sling) above a small ledge. Cut straight right, roll up and over a cool, hanging flake, and then mantle up to the base of a dimpled face. This gently overhanging, 25' crux plate is technical and intricate, requiring thin crimping, dead-points, and other terrific movement.

"The world will never starve for want of wonders; but only for want of wonder." --GKC

TT is one of the better pitches on The Halidome. 3.5 stars.

Location

This is in the West Sector at the base of The Halidome about 50' up-slope from Wind Machine.

Protection

12 bolts + anchor. 90'.

Very enjoyable moderate climbing on good stone for the first half, into an amazing crux headwall with awesome movement and beautiful stone.
These routes are worth a visit. Aug 23, 2012
