Trial Wall topo

Described from left to right and starting with the crack just right of the left arete.

1. The Adulteress E2 5c ★ the crack, overlap, then right to wider crack. A good warm up.

2. Blackman's Pinch E4 6b ★★ the rightward slanting crack, overlap, BR, and short wall to finishing crack of Adulteress. Popular but easy in technical grade.

3. Skull Attack (7b+) ★★★ THE route of the wall. A very technical wall and thin crack gain the roof. Step left to finish up a thin crack and groove. Fully bolted.

Retrobution (7b) ★★★ takes the groove of Crime and Punishment but follows it all the way into Skull Attack and finishes up that.

4. Crime and Punishment E5 6b ★★ scoop and shallow groove to its top. Step right to follow thin crack through overlap to finishing wall.

Black Wall Direct (8a+) ★★ starts up Black Wall but goes straight through the overhang.

5. Black Wall (7b) ★★ desperate technical climbing. A hard wall leads to an overlap followed by even harder moves. Old and new BR's mark the line.

6. Inch Pinch E3 6b hard moves gain a crack where the difficulties ease. Some PRs in place.

7. The Hant (7a) ★★ after the hard start of Inch Pinch, move right go through the overlap, tricky, and follow a shallow groove and crack.

8. Tribulations (7a) ★ short desperate wall on right.
