Description 

Begin as for Ricochet traverse to the start of Left Train Track and finish up that problem, this route is hard and since the hard part of the route is a traverse it requires great core strength, the crux is stating low between the left and right train track. This rock is on the sharper side but it is fun none the less.

The crux is staying very low between the Right and Left Train Track. From the starting hold on right Train Track move down, then go left using a small undercling. A bit contrived since its easier to go across up higher, but a powerful sequence.

This thing is really hard to figure out. Worked on this for close to an hour before giving up. The crux sequence I was trying felt closer to v9. I must have been missing some crucial beta. Super sustained climbing. Cool problem. I'll have to try it again next time I'm in the area for sure.

Troy-

There's video of this problem being done out there if you're interested. It's an older video shot by Russ Greenwald. Here it is:

Thanks Christian. That move at 4:08 is where I was getting stuck. I was trying to flip my right hand in the crack (which wasn't working) but I'm excited to go back and try it some more. Always helps to see someone else do it.
