Not that 5 pitch route though that's on my list to do. The link-up we did to do it ended up being 5 pitches! This route's last pitch (5.6) is one of the most overlooked least chalked climbs in one of the best sections of the Trapps. The rocks a little loose but there is probably no route that can challenge its exposure at its grade. (maybe high ex)

Here's my last hint photo, it's inbetween 3 3-star routes!

Yes! Julie got it, it's Psychedelic!
We climbed Directissima to the GT then Psychedelic to the top. The 5.9+ pitch off the GT ledge is a bit dirty and you have to wrestle with a tree (to me that adds to the fun) but this can be avoided by climbing up Modern times until about 15 feet below the roof to join Psychedelic keeping the whole route at 5.6.

How about another obscure route also in the Trapps???
Note: The climb may appear smaller than normal because the climber is 6'6"

Although I'm usually wrong here, I'll guess it's the first pitch of Glypnod.

Yes, Caver got it, it's Ventre de Boeuf! It has as much caving on it as climbing, here's the bombay chimney...
