BETA PHOTO: P1 of Lean and Mean
A portion of Near Trapps has been closed to climbing MORE INFO >>>


P1 - Start mid-way up the hill with the arrete to your left. Climb the thin face (5.7) to where the route obviously then goes left. Step around the arrete and head up to the tree anchor.

P2 - Step left over the void to the right face of the cliff. Traverse right along the face and head up the notch (crux) with good feet and well-placed jugs. Exit the top at the left.


Nearly all the way to the end of the Near Trapps. This route starts on the side of a massive boulder that is leaning against the cliff. It is near a 5.6 A3 roof with fixed gear.


Gear Anchor at the top. Walk-off descent.

An absolutely great climb. The first pitch is more 5.7, and the second looks harder than it is. But everything is there, even in the intimidating notch. Definitely well recommended.

It was a great route and P2's roof had rests along the way.
