Cheater's Trophy Loss Lament 5.10d (Sport) ***

First Ascent: Zach Wilson, Matthew Jaggers in 2021
Length: 80ft
Bolts: 11 (report bad bolts/anchors)

Click for more images
A challenging and thought provoking traverse bulge stands as an early crux, leading to an amazing fat flake, followed by giant, glorious jugs to the anchor. Use the old chain anchor as the last bolt and continue past to the lower offs on the upper ledge. Gear Beta: alpine sling the 4th bolt, and backclean (or alpine sling) the 5th bolt to minimize rope drag.
Moves: Balancey, Pumpy, Juggy
Descent: Lower Offs
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry
Owner: RRGCC
