What? A trad line!!! This line climbs the crack which starts at the belay ledge
at start of "Trundler's Delight's" second pitch. It cruises up the right facing
corner, left of the bolted line, using lay-backs and good face holds. It appears
the best placements are IN the corner, seams on the face may be subject to
blow-outs! Due to Chucky's height, only 1 cam was placed for this whole line,
but I think it is a good training piece for placing gear (perhaps done as an aid
climb!). Due to its location, it will probably need cleaning now and again,
especially after a rain. For the record, the boys actually continued on as a 3
pitch climb for this by topping out on the last 2 bolts of "Trundler's Delight."
