Josh doing his first lead climb on Trespass.


The first 20 feet are the crux. Top out on a ledge. Route goes vertical to slab, clipping the 3rd bolt can be a little hairy.


To the right of the main wall, Only bolted line on the face.


4 Bolts, Fixe anchors - There is a crack at the ledge that will take a tricam.

This climb was named "Trespass" by its first ascender Katie Ives. The
named listed here is artificial and was placed on
during a bout of paranoia about access.

In my humble opinion, if you blew the clip at the third bolt bad enough it could be a ground fall. Luckily that part of the climb is slabby and less than vertical. The crux is between the first and second bolt.
After that, the climb is easy.

Also, the one time I climbed it I pulled off a piece of choss about the size of a softball that luckily missed my belayer
who was not wearing a helmet.

One more thing, Katie thought it was a 5.9, and I agree, except that I would call it a 5.9 R.

I have heard you can place some gear on this route in addition to clipping bolts. Guessing tricams in pockets.

One of the most fun climbs at P rocks. Worth the hike. Wouldn't worry about the 3rd bolt runout as there are a lot of good holds up to it.If your good enough to try it it should be pretty easy. Last week the climb seemed very clean and well bolted.If you clip the anchors as soon as you can reach them and calling that the end you have missed out on two more fun moves to finish the climb. ON par with other 10a routes at P Rocks.

This route has been cleaned up and the bolts have been moved to safer placements right of the original line.

Trespass 2.0 - 6 bolts to rap ring anchors.

Another fixed route thanks to Joe and Troy. Surprised no one was maimed or killed considering all the loose blocks this route used to have on it all those years. Good rule of thumb for limestone sport climbs--> If you aren't going to clean it, don't bother bolting it.
