Traversing with your feet on the jug works surprisingly well and, while a little delicate, is way less pumpy and eliminates the mantel move.

I thought the traverse and mantle were easier than the sustained thin jamming above. Cool route.

Can't help but give this 4 stars. It's long, sustained and great the whole way. Onsight in the truest sense, leading this was one of the coolest experiences in my 20+ years of climbing.

Thought this was solid! at 10+ but I guess everything is getting downrated in some mad race to make Trout Creek the most old school sandbagged area in the west.
