near the beginning of the Long Traverse


Start in a hollow with a good hold in the top of it. Make an awkward pull to stand up and traverse right and up along crimps until you reach a good jug in the right trending seam/crack and rest. Drop down and around the corner with a stellar heel hook, and top out up the arete.


As you enter Dynamite Shacks, go straight up the hill in line with the entrance, past a large boulder with an easy flake. Long Traverse ascends the first large boulder uphill and right of the easy flake.


Crash pad and spotter.

If you actually drop down from the final seam jug, to an undercling (with the right, on the underbelly, and then drop left hand to the side-pull crimp)...a really nice transition, then start the overhang/prow with the lowest matching shelf jug, and continue with the jug pocket with the right and up the prow with the left and finish with an easy dyno/static move, then the rating is about V3...hence my rating on the "ticks". If not, it about V2-, in my opinion. It's a bit descript, but it seemed the "natural" line with transition to me.
