Tennish on TR

Description 

Start just 15 feet right of Wegetables I've Never Seen Before, just below a low tree at a left-leaning crack.

Climb the crack up to the overhang, aiming for the large horn. Move up past the horn on good, pumpy holds until you can traverse right on a series of smaller holds (crux). Once you reach the "thank god" stance (be creative!) work up on easier climbing to the ledge and tree belay/rap station.

Dick Williams describes this is having "thoughtful, pumpy moves"... and "strenuous to place gear." I couldn't agree more!


Location 

Far right end of the trapps... to access this area find a trail leading off the carriage road at the 'S' turn... follow traveled terrain towards the cliffs. Walk along up past the Dick's prick pinnacle and down the other side of the slope to reach Tennish


Protection 

standard gunks rack up to #1 camalot

I agree with Williams- he got this one right- fun little climb, and indeed interesting.

Straightforward to set up a top-rope on this after doing Wegetables (10a).

I think one key move below the main overhang might be pretty height related: At 169.5cm / 5ft7in I felt I could just barely "walk" my fingers onto the obvious rock horn.

I found this route significantly harder than Wegetables and Restless Virgins. It's technical and definitely PG. If this is 10c, Wegetable is 9. That said, the moves are very high quality and the last traverse is just lovely.

I second what georgejessel said. I really liked the traverse--thoughtful and pumpy at the same time. Very good gear the whole way, but none of the placements are obvious.

I would recommend bringing a couple micro nuts, they may prove useful in one spot. good route.
