moving through the crux traverse


A great route. 4th class up to the first bolt, pull a roof, and eek up the airy arÍte.


The Left most route of the farthest North facing side of the tower.


9 bolts.

Amazing route! The steep traverse diagonaling line from the first bolt to the arete is the crux, and with only 15' of climbing leaves you with over 100' of air beneath your heels! After a rest perched on the arete, get ready to puzzle through steadily thinning holds to a tricky second crux just below the anchor. A superb pitch, one of my favorite sport climbs ever.
