About The Trapps:
The Trapps is the most popular cliff at the Gunks. There are fantastic climbs of all difficulties along its entire 3 mile length. The nice flat carriage road runs along the base of the entire cliff, and routes are approached by numerous marked trails through the talus.
Near the beginning of the Trapps in Dougs Roof area is the Uberfall. Rangers selling day passes, spring water, rescue equipments, partners, and great bouldering can all be had here. This is the meeting place of the Gunks, and is always a circus. The 4th class Uberfall descent is located here, and is the best descent from the top of the cliff for routes from the beginning of the Trapps to about the Shockleys Ceiling area.
Routes are in order from South to North (left to right) Please do not just add blank routes with no beta!
There are three ratings systems of which you should be aware, when climbing at the Gunks: the Yosemite Decimal System (YDS), the protection rating (G, PG, R, X), the star rating (no stars = average climb, one star = good climb, two stars = excellent climb, three stars = classic)
