Description

Start on the jugs at the right side of the low roof (about 4 feet left of the SW arete) and traverse the lip of the roof and continue as the holds start to get a bit smaller and the landing more rocky. Reaching the last obvious holds at waist height would leave the grade around V2+ or V3. From here look for some hidden holds, keep your feet off the ground (although I still use a major ledge for the feet) and make a long reach to a left facing mini-dihedral. Layback your way up this dihedral and topout via a pocket and some edges. Pretty fun and pumpy.

Protection

A following spotter and pad for the exit are nice, especially for the rocky landing near the end of the traverse.

Tried this today for the first time, did not send unfortunately; however, I will be back to conquer it. I actually was trying to do the traverse from left to right, so I wonder if right to left is any easier? Jan 3, 2016
