Description 

Trail of Tears is a wild ride. Start on the furthest right line of bolts on the steep wall. Big moves lead up and right and eventually out of the A-frame, stemming between the flake and the cliff band. The route actually exits outside the cave. There is a deadpoint crux between bolt 2 and 3, then another difficult crux that gets you to the stem. If you are short it adds significantly to the grade as you have to do some very difficult climbing to reach a further stem.

Protection 

8 bolts or so. This one is very hard to clean.
