In reply to Hardonicus: If you elevate yourself off the deck you have achieved a move further than me when I tried it. But that was a few years back and I hope to have more success on my next attempt! Good luck.
too late, but I faced right as it looked like there were more foot placements on that wall (opposite to how I've done the Peapod every time and the photos above). Was amazing, wanted two left arms and my white shoes were green at the end. good times
If it seems easy this time go for Blue light's Crack

Didn't see you on this this evening, I did the route around tea time. I got up it OK, but found it shitty, horrible, and not in any way fun, precisely as I expected. Of the big three HVSs I think it's probably technically the easiest, although Fredie's is probably an easier route as while it has a very hard move at the start it's not sustained.
In reply to Jon Stewart: I had enough of a hard time on Coffin Crack to realise I had little chance on Trident last night. I saw someone second it (facing right) as we were walking up about 5.30. Was that you guys?
In reply to Hardonicus: yes that'd be us. Seems we both faced right then. I loathe that style of climbing and I scraped my way up without mishap, so it can't be that hard! To its credit, it does have completely solid jams, its just the feet/legs that require wedgy/scrapey techniques.
