Twin cracks pinching off to a funky crux at the top. The Wenger guide gives it 5.10+, so clearly, I disagree, but you should go see for yourself.


Around the corner to the north of Talkin' it Clean. Look for a small block with twin cracks above and a horizontal break on the left at about 15-20 feet.

Over the years this climb has really cleaned up and I agree it is now much easier than 5.10+.

The Wiggle Room is just left of Usual Suspects. It is not at the far left as stated here. The crack at the far left is Ninjinski and is 5.10-.

Very fun climb but bring small nuts to protect the top. You won't find cam placements for about 20 feet.

Super fun climb; climbs different than most routes at Trout. Not just stemming or straight in jamming.

You can definitely protect it with small nuts (BD stoppers #4-7 range), but for 20 feet the crack is so small you don't really even have finger tips. And the only place you do have good tips is the spot you will probably want to place a stopper. Felt very insecure and hard for the grade.
