Trickster climbs up the juggy face holds then cuts right under the overhanging section. Set your feet and use a blocky left hand undercling, move your right hand to a good pinch. Move left up to a crimp, over the lip, on the base of the ramp with the left, set feet high, and make the crux move to the high right hand pinch side-pull above the first bolt. Pull through the steep section into a small corner/dihedral and continue up on crimps and small pinches trending left of the 5.7 crack system, staying in the dihedral. From start to finish, stay just left of the high first bolt, to keep the grade at .12a.


Trickster is protected by one bolt yet is normally a TR. Bring material to build a tree anchor at the top of the climb.


Small gear before the bolt, however I do remember not wanting to fall on the gear. May 22, 2014

Bolt replaced with a nice fatty 4/14/15. Tree at the top is now backed up with an enormous 5/8x5" bolt and links. Apr 15, 2015
