A portion of Near Trapps has been closed to climbing
A portion of the Near Trapps has been closed to climbing. This includes land below the cliff to above cliff line and starts approximately at Eenie Meenie and continues south about 200 feet. Climbers are asked to respect the no-trespassing signs and advised to use the access trail marked in orange blazes. This trail starts at the intersection of the Blue trail over the top of the Nears and the first Red trail. Follow the orange blazes east and downhill from this junction to arrive at the far (south) end of the Nears.

Climb the face about 10 feet right of King of P (crux) to a horizontal with good gear. Step up and make a few very easy moves left, to the base of the right-arching corner. Follow the corner up and right to its top and the natural path back left to the pine tree atop King of P. Protect your follower on the leftward traverse.
A single pitch, located on the left side of the Williams Wall and just right of the easy crack line, King of P. Look for a right arching corner beginning about 15 feet up.

If you lead 5.9 here, you will have no problem with this route and won't feel it's dangerous. Either place small creative gear at the base of the corner or make one extra easy move past the comfy ledge to something better. You don't want to blow it here but it's easier climbing.
