Description 

Contains five sport routes with bolt protection and anchors.
Overall faces WSW.

Just as we recognize the June Lake Loop as a little visit to Switzerland, so we feel the featured granite of Rush as a taste of the famous granite of Chamonix Mont Blanc in France . . .
"Trident" is for the Trident du Tacul, a remarkable granite needle rising up out of the glacier over Combe Maudit (and just left of the Grand Capucin). Of course topped with three vertical prongs (of granite). Very popular by its least-difficult route Voie Lépiney.
. ("trident" is pronounced in French something like tree-dahn, but of course it's easily spoken as the English word of the same meaning).

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Getting There 

Follow the instructions on the Rush area description page to reach sector 7 Midi. Then turn Left and walk/scramble N about 500 feet (with some ups + downs) to reach this sector. (8-16 minutes)

Or at times of low water flow in Rush Creek, consider the "Alternate hiking/wading approach" described further down on the Rush area description page to reach sector 1 Papillons, then scramble steep up right, and horizontal about 100 feet across sector 2 Genepi to reach this sector.
