This route was established by a French Guide on rappel and the quality of the route is summarized best by its name. This route has numerous bolts, many of which Tuolumne climbers will feel are not needed. Harder moves are often easily bypassed by moving onto easier ground to the left or right of the route. All anchors are bolted belays. The Crux is one move of 10.C face climbing that can be aided past if necessary. The route takes the path of most resistance up easier terrain. It is possible to link the first two pitches with a 70m rope. The final fourth pitch has the crux. After pulling the crux you can continue straight up on easy 5.10 face climbing or go to 5.8 flake on the right. Sling pro long if you take the flake. This route is ideal to use as a quick way to access Hobbit Book.


This route begins with large number of bolts just right of a large right facing corner system that goes up most of Drug Dome. It is to the right of the route Crystal Meth which starts just to the right of the huge black streak seen on Drug Dome. The first three bolts are easily bypassed using a 3rd class ramp and serve more as a marking than for protection. It tops out in an ideal place to access more routes.


9 draws. Single for Cams from .4-1.5 inches. Long slings helpful.

Such a strange route--only worth doing if you want to access the routes above (Hobbit Book, etc.). IT is almost like he ran out of bolts at the top, the bottom is so heavily bolted, the top fairly sparsely bolted (compared to the bottom). This route is doable in 3 70M pitches (the 2nd and 3rd being rope stretchers, fully 70 meter pitches).

There is a variation to the final pitch of Euro Trash called Europop which keeps the climbing in the same moderate range of the first three pitches.

Clint Cummins and I added SS quick links and rings to the anchor bolts on all four pitches of this route. The hardware was provided by the ASCA( They appreciate your support.

The last pitch of White Trash provides a nice, moderate alternative to the last pitch of Euro trash.
