Punch through the low crux to good holds and a rest ledge. Continue to follow the crack through some moderate climbing. Finish up a wide crack to the bolted anchor.


The obvious fetching tight-hands to off-finger splitter that startsnear the middle of the main wall.


Standard rack to 3"
Fixed anchor at top.

Can someone enlighten me with beta on how to jam your hands and/or fingers for the first tier? I've worked the crack on top rope to lead Trident but I'am obviously missing something here... I've never been so miserable on a project.

Beta from someone who has actually done the climb on lead please!

Thanks Sep 17, 2015

It will depend on the size of your hand!

If you can't get a hand or tight hand jam look at doing a ring lock (finger stack). Don't forget about jamming your feet!

A good resource for learning jamming techniques is The Crack Climber's Technique Manual by Kent Pease. Sep 17, 2015

My friend lost feeling in her pinky for a couple months, it's some tough jamming depending on your hand size and reach.
I can't lead it, flailed a lot before managing it, takes a while to dial it... Sep 18, 2015
