I was up at courtright res. this last weekend and thought I would check out trapper dome. I did a couple climbs then I began exploring. I first checked out the LARGE south west face and then I entered that cave, following it up to the top. I noticed an awsome overhanging boulder problem that was chalked, but past that I found something unbelievable.
There in front of me were bolts spaced 3ft. apart going up an upside down open book that slanted almost horizontal with one of the sides making a roof. there were like NO HOLDS. I could hardily make out how it might be possible to climb. It seems too vertical to stem properly.
I've never really seen one, but it looks like it could be 5.13d+.

Does anyone know about this? After seeing it I remembered that Chris Sharma had been in this area supposedly.

I would email Climbing Dude at totalclimbingonline.com

He's been up there a bunch and is pretty hip to the new lines.

Time to lead it up. Your name must be Scott, thanks for continuing to put up quality, fun routes in obscure areas.

I have been there and seen that too!
That is one of the coolest routes I have ever seen.
Before I move, I'm going to go up there and work it.

The upper part looks like the 12c section.
It will be harder to lead I bet.

COOL LINE. :D
