First Trapps Chimney

-- This route intersects the rap line for High E (depending on exactly where ropes are tossed). We used this as a warmup climb since a large group was starting up High E when we arrived. --
P1 5.5 G -- Follow crack/corner to blockier terrain above, eventually ending at rap anchors.
P2 -- Continue up corner. We did not explore this pitch due to the impending rappelling.
To the right of the Directississima face is a chimney. 15 feet to the right of the chimney, start at a flared crack and a short right-facing corner.
Standard rack (#3 C4 helpful). Anchors.

Very committing moves but well protected. Worth climbing if you're already there and can't get on High E.

First pitch is nice, second pitch is easy but not much gear. Brings you to a nice ledge where you have a good view of climber's making "the move" on High E. You can walk over to the High E belay ledge too. Third pitch is messy and not worth doing unless you want to get to the top. Bolted anchors all the way.
