Description

The only difference between this and the standard meditation traverse is the requirement to stay low through the roof on the north side of this boulder. Usually this section is the last climbed, so ones shakes off the initially pump at the jugs on the NW corner before attacking the final crux moves below the roof. After you have it wired, do laps or work it in reverse or try Tommy's Way.

Protection

Lowball, pad or spotter not required, but always nice.

Cringe. That's SW corner for rest, then under south roof for crux... Aug 6, 2001
Just a little more clarity on the holds . Really simple; no holds above the roof everything else goes. Jan 9, 2002

Fun problem. There was a crystle on the right most hold under the roof that gave a lot of bite on your index but it seems that it has been filed down. That was the key to the problem! Also, use a brush. The holds are caked with chalk to the point of no return. I tried brushing it off with a wet tooth brush and it did little to expose the rock. Jul 25, 2003

I have shed a lot of words, and skin on this problem but once you get it you will be pumped. Keep those feet low and use them to your advantage Sep 26, 2007
