Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details


That Thing is an old TR line that got a redpoint lead in 2017. It climbs the face to the left of Frustration Syndrome, and passes the roof left of the crux of Frustration. This route really breaks down into a few boulder problems, with each boulder problem followed by a decent rest.

The description in the Dick Williams guide book is pretty accurate, however, recently a direct line was done that avoids the upper parts of frustration syndrome: start on the direct start of Frustration Syndrome (5.11aR), and then climb left up into a small left-facing corner. From there you climb a seemingly blank face, up towards a small right-facing corner in the roof and pull through here. Finally, traverse up and right on easy ground to the Frustration bolt anchors.


Just left of Frustration Syndrome.


A good selection of micro cams and wires. The gear is actually pretty good on this route, but each hard section requires climbing above the gear with ledges or slabs below you, so the falls would not be great, but the gear would hold.
