SW Face Left (Trespassers Wall) Rock Climbing
Listen to the crunchy feet to judge your friction ...
This warm place on a chilly afternoon provides delicate climbing up orange rock.
Althought the routes here are bolted they are not sport climbs and have a very runout feel to them. The climbing is characterised by steep smearing with the occasional small flakes. Composure is a requirement.
Descent: Facing the rock, walk down slabs to the left to a final steep 15 foot section which can either be down-climbed or, if composed, walked off.
Park at Echo Rock Parking Lot and walk under the EBGBs Boulder and around the right-hand side of Echo Rock past TS Special. Follow the trail across open desert heading towards the SW Face of Little Hunk, just before reaching this face cut to the right and scramble through bushes and over boulders to rach the base of the wall (faint trail).

This sustained slab route, like most of the routes on this side of Little Hunk, affords decent quality climbing and sometimes engaging moves but needs a bit more traffic to clean it up.The 5.11 crux comes early in the vicinty of the 3rd/4th bolt but there's another tricky sequence (5.10+) at the 6th bolt and sustained 5.10 slab climbing with spaced bolts all the way to the top. This is a technical and sustained slab route that is worthy of more attention and with more traffic it will clean up ni...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
