The Trenches are a line of conglomerate puddingstone that stands 6 feet tall by maybe 40 feet long, with a horizontal crack system spanning the length at about hip height.

Short boulder, soft and flat landings, good holds, and easy top-outs make this boulder a good option for warming up if you don't have a pad.

Getting There 

The Trenches live just to the left of the Uncle Tom Boulder. From the main alcove area, walk towards Beached Whale and the toproping wall, turn right, and head up the hill.

The holds were chalked when I found this wall. If anyone knows that these routes have been referred to by other names, feel free to make changes.
