Game Plan

Trail Blazer is a two pitch route with a steep flake first pitch.

First Half.  5.11a****  Gear.  A bolt protected start on steep junk quickly gives way to solid rock with two more bolts to a steep crack.  Exit the crack right at a bolt.  If climbing the second pitch, continue another 30 feet of 5.8 to the higher of two anchors.   90 feet to higher anchor.

Second Half. 5.10c***  Bolted.  Exposed with cryptic sequences on good rock.  Optional .75 Camalot.  75 ft.

"For Smith climbing to rise again, a new generation will need to not merely follow in the the footsteps of those who came before, but blaze their own trails up the golden walls of tuff."   -Alan Watts

Home Court

Hike up the gully between the Monument and Anglin's Buttress for five minutes and look for the obvious 50 foot tall flake of the first pitch.
