David on the traverse.


If you are searching for a good bolted moderate, this one is worth coming to the Head Wall to do. Climb up a crack and make a long traverse left along a horizontal crack to reach the white arete (crux). When doing the traverse, you can take the high road or the low road, without changing the grade. At the arete, climb up and gain a stance on the left side. Climb up the left side of the arete to reach the anchors.


From the Right Side of the head wall, continue down stream along the cliff line, following the trail up hill a bit. Start on a ledge to the left of a large tree and to the left of the obvious bolted offwidth (China Crisis, 5.11b).


5 bolts, shuts.

Ill have to disagree with the below comments.Very Unique and interesting rock climb worth doing! Def. Spicy if 5.9 is your onsight limit. Sweet horizontal hand jams while smearing your feet was interesting. If you are short you may find the clipping stances up on the slab challenging.
