Description 

This traverse is in the same area as the High Traverse and the Low Traverse. Start on Jugs on the right hand side of the Low Traverse and climb through slopers at about chest height. After about five feet, There are some jugs at chest height. Don't grab these, but use a crimper to the right of the jugs at about head height (about 6 feet up). The rest of the traverse uses the holds located where the rock changes from smooth to chirt right below the two jugs mentioned earlier. You will find a sloper/pinch, and some small crimps. One of the crimps has a piece of chirt right about it which scrapes against your finger nails. End the traverse on the smallest holds you can use. A slightly (but still V4) easier version uses the pork chop shaped hold. There should be some easier way to describe the elimination problems at Capen. This one is included because it is one of the best, but it is hard to describe. If you want a really good workout, do the traverse one way, then reverse it. It has been done.
