Project Crack Traverse


Start on Prozac Crack till you hit the horizontal crack. Move right on slopers and ok feet, the pump builds just as you hit the crux. Finish on Loathing Arete. The crux of this is really establishing yourself on coner and then moving around onto loathing arete. Sending this is an immediate cure for your depression.

The grade on this is approximate. By far the hardest send for me and took much more work then other V6's. However until someone else does this it will stay a V6.

pretty much the entire hold that is the right hand hold for the dyno project. there are some sharp shards left, but they need to be cleaned up more before you try and hold on to them

Cleaned up that hold today and its basically useless. I was able to send without it but it was defiantly harder, a V7 for sure now.
