This is an alternate finish on Trilobite. This was the first climb to have bolts placed with a power drill by the locals on the pass.

Climb the nice stemming dihedral of Trilobite. Exit out right with a mantle. From the stance make a fairly easy but spooky move up to a small cam placement. From here, continue past two bolts on the cruxy head wall to the chains.


On the lower section of the wall. Climbs the same dihedral as Trilobite.


Small to medium cams and bolts.

Actually, not that anyone would really care, the first rap-bolted, power-drilled route was Scene of the Crime, by Benge and Steiger.
