By the first bolt.

  • Description 

    Greenback climbs a steep slab near the center of Trout Rock, about 10' right of Cutthroat.

    Climb past a neat hole in the rock by the first bolt and continue up the sustained thin face, using the crack and seam left of the bolts. Lower from the 2-bolt anchor.

    This is a great pitch with intricate and thoughtful climbing.

    Protection 

    4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

    Ledge fall possible getting to 2d bolt.

    I'm with Chris, if you miss the second clip you could hit the ledge. Short folks might be happier to pre-hang the draw on the second bolt.

    Better than it looks, and fairly sustained all the way. I didn't really notice a distinct crux, and blowing the 2nd clip would be bad. Overall, I enjoyed this one.
