AKA: Center Trinity; All three Trinity cracks share the same start. Climb the lieback crack straight untill you find yourself at a good stance under the roof(somewhere around 11c to the stance). This is where Trinity Right would head straight right traversing the underclings/horizontal roof crack. Instead, continue out the roof clipping 3 round eye bolts and executing the bizarre V 6ish boulder problem. Grovel over the roof onto the slab and clip the chains.


Up the Green Adjective gully proper on the right wall approx 200 feet up and to the right from the Green Adjective base. All three trinity cracks share the right-facing lieback start under the large angular roof 55' above.


Set of nuts, cams from purple metolius to red metolius. Optional doubles on blues and yellows metolius(needed if you want to ignore the bolts). Extendable slings and draws. The old rusted fixed nuts on the route have been removed (rusted and old).

If I recall correctly, the crux throw to the lip with the right involves pinching the sh*t out of the equivalent to a granite "lug nut" with the left with poor feet pasted as high as you can walk them..and goo luck nailing that "There is only one good hold" lip on the first try.

I replaced the old manky "perma-draws" with steel draws on 10/3/2015. Also, there are a number of bats who've taken up residence in the cracks that head up Trinity Left. They don't interfere with Holy Ghost/Trinity Right, but you do get mighty close to them.
