Rachel halfway up Time Trials, from the Little Gem...


Crux is at the bottom, but there are a few interesting moves breaking the mini-hang. Casual, fun climbing after that.
Climb up the (often dirty) left-rising crack to reach good holds to its right, mantle onto these and break the mini-hang another left-rising crack. Climb directly up the face, eschewing all possible early escapes, to top out at its apex.


Right side of the bottom of a steep dirt cone below and right of the Little Gem Diner wall. Look for a left-rising vertical crack starting near ground level, becoming a dirty offwidth where it reaches a small overhang 15' up.
There is a birch tree to climber's right of the top-out, but rappelling off this will kill it. There is a downclimbable ramp a bit farther downhill.


Standard Adk. Trad Rack. No pins, bolts, or anchors. Easy to build a gear anchor slightly below the top-out.
