Description 

Fox Trap hole can be climbed as a single pitch, or feel free to rap off the mid-ledge rap anchors. When setting the anchor for this line, I found a rusted fox trap at the top of the route so I placed it at the rap anchors, connected for future climbers to see. The top face does not have rap anchors, as of 2012.

The crux tends to be the bulges. The first one is to the left of the Fox Hole and then the second bulge is climbed about eight feet further left. Head back right the gain the rap anchors. The upper face provides positive jugs to climb all the way over the top.

Location 

To access Fox Trap hole, hike right from the slab wall area, the hike 3rd class up the next drainage until you are below the obvious large hole. Climb up and mantle into the hole or traverse left and climb up the left side. Use the mid-climb rap anchors.
