Description

This climbs the left off-width crack (plus additional small face holds) on this face. The crux is low. Trevor Bowman lists this as 5.8 in his guidebook, but it seems more consistent with 5.7 to me.

Location

East face of the bench below (but connected to) Trail Lake Pinnacle's northeast edge. This climb is the off-width crack just left of the farthest left bolt line.

Protection

You could lead with wide trad gear, or reach right to clip the bolts of Spring Fever like I did. Alternatively, rappel from the highest 2-bolt anchor and set up a top rope from the the anchor this route shares with Spring Fever.

I believe that I did the FA of this thing back in 2001 or so. I will have to try and find one of the surviving copies of my old guidebook I did for the area to verify. If I do so, I will update info. I know we climbed those cracks, and I bolted a couple short, maybe contrived little faces routes there.

We put up a number of little routes around the base of Goliath and throughout the area. This was when I was in high school, and I'm sure many of these lines are somewhat silly and not the most intelligently designed. Jul 24, 2017
