I love doing traverses. I learned to climb this winter on the gunsmoke traverse in Joshua tree. What are some other amazing traverses across the country??? Jeffrey OBrien

Blanca/Little Bear Traverse Sangre de Christo range in Colorado. It's an easy traverse thats arguably 5th class but it has a great view. Rob Felts

I think the OP is looking for bouldering traverses.

I like traverses a lot too. Simplicity of bouldering, and the flow of sport climbing. A few of my favorites:

Gunsmoke (V3) Joshua Tree

Kirkatron (V5) Joshua Tree

Sabres of Paradise (V7+) Happies
