Description

Stem up to clip the 1st bolt. Then commit to the cruxy overhanging wall, clip the 2nd bolt, and step left to end the difficulty. Climb easily to the right-leaning corner. Climb through this corner (2nd slightly easier crux) protected by 2 bolts. Continue another 30' or so to the anchors up easier terrain. Lower/rappel to ground.

Location

Blind Trust is between The Young and the Rackless and Nighthawk (closer to the latter). It starts on the left side of the 15' overhanging wall where 2 bolts protect the start. There is 2 bolts protecting the right side of this wall (not sure what climb this is). Look for a right-leaning corner above the start that is protected by 2 bolts.

Protection

This is a mixed route as it is a long way from the last bolt to the anchor. 2 bolts protect the overhanging wall and 2 bolts protect the tricky corner. Between them, you may want to put in a piece and you will want to put in at least a couple of pieces between the last bolt and the anchors (I used #1 cam and 0.3 cam). A very light rack will suffice.

Spicy route! The overhang and the corner were fun to work out, a bit run out at top, but it can be protected. Oct 30, 2016
