Trickster Coyote is located down and to the left of the vegetated, boulder strewn gully that splits Wintergarden Wall and is immediately left of Changeling. Both climbs start from a small, overgrown belay stance below the prow on the left side of the wall. Start below a small overhang. Boulder up to and through the overhang (decent protection), and pull up into a dihedral using good holds higher up. There are a couple of sketchy, thin face moves about a third of the way up (crux). The protection is adequate, but the stances are a little awkward. The difficulty eases above the face as the cracks get better. Belay on a good ledge above the route, and rappel off a good tree 20 feet to the right. The rock here is course and crystalline.
Standard rack (small gear helpful). Gear anchor, tree rappel.
