It's a Trap! 5.10c (Mixed) ****

First Ascent: Dustin Stephens, Scott Curran in 2012
Length: 80ft
Bolts/Gear: 1/ (report bad bolts/anchors)

About 200 feet right from Dagobah and 150 feet left of where the approach trail forks left is a blocky section of wall which splits from slab to steep at midheight. This worthy trad line begins on the left side of the wall and takes on the steep crack system. Begin with the dihedral then launch into steep climbing with decent protection and a single bolt. There may be anchors before the steep climbing begins, which makes for a decent 5.8"
Moves: unknown
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Downpour
Owner: RRGCC

This is going to be a good route, when Dustin and Scott finish bolting it.

Sweet route! Great layback to even greater face climb to the anchors!
dustonian said on July 30th, 2012
A BD #3 or 4 is useful in the opening horizontals above the crack, save a 0.5 for upper run to the anchor

we'll get that anchor on the bottom part one of these years haha

Awesome route. Not many gear routes like this in the red. There are no intermediate anchors and I think the route is better off without them. Would get 5 stars if someone does some gardening and scrubbing.
