start of Catch a Fire.


Start up a slabby seam to a black bulge. Then back to steep, sustained, slabby seam with occasional finger locks. First slab crux is bolt protected (the only bolt) and next slab crux is protected by thin gear and is a bold move. P1 belay at a nice sandy ledge ~180' 10c. P2 starts up a steep thin crack. Continues up thin crack until it goes away, then step right (10a crux) for a wild lie back and thin face climbing until you can step right again into a wide crack. Follow to top.


Trenchtown Rock, right side. Big slab against base of cliff, the crack on right that starts from it. NOT the polish thin crack up the left. Walk off left 2nd and 3rd class. (there are supposed to be rap anchors on the polish thin crack, but we didn't see any and opted to walk off)


1 bolt, gear R.P.'s to a 3" piece. Mostly thin. Gear anchors
