Trenchtown is more of an area than a route. A wide range of possible top-rope routes from 5.0 to 5.10 are possible. This is a great place for beginners to top rope or practice a first rappel on slabs.


Just east of Tower of Babel. Around to the west of the main formation with Hyperion Slab and around past The Egg. West facing exposure is warmer and sheltered on windy days.


Some bolts and some inclusions that you can sling. Long runners (10ft) will be needed to keep from abrading your ropes.

Excellent slab for beginners. Easy, fun, laid back slab climbing. Feb 19, 2018
