BETA PHOTO: Hair Trigger (5.10c), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles

Description 

Located on the outer face of a prominent block that sits on the right side of the Pistol Whipped Wall and just right of Silver Bullet.

A short section of easy face gains a ledge at the base of the block proper. Pull onto the deceptively steep face above, jam or face climb around a short section of handcrack and then tackle the finishing bulge (crux) on rapidly diminishing holds.

Short but demanding in nature, this route isn't in the bag until you clip the anchors.


Protection 

5 bolts, sport anchors

Short, yet consistent and fun. The last strong move warrants a 10d rating in my opinion.
