Description

This is the best problem we found at Twin Coves.

Starting 20' left and downhill from the beginning of Seagull arete you will find an overhung section that allows for a great bouldering traverse. Start on the large jug in the slot, and move steadily uphill on the arete. Continue uphill with hands and feet on the arete and mantle out just before the large bulge around the corner from Seagull Arete.

The final moves are guaranteed to slit your wrist.

Protection

crashpads and a spotter. The ground's not so nice under the problem.

this was done for years before it was called wrist slitter traverse but your story sounds interesting enough to maybe make it worthy of naming it that once and for all!? Sep 1, 2010
What a wonderful way to go, laying under a large rock while your life blood drains out of your newly cut wrists. All the while a baby seal (who really should have been clubed) eats at your toes. Poetic. Mar 24, 2004
