wrong name again folks FUN ASS SLOPER TRAVERSE! Jul 18, 2003
guys, anyway you do this problem, it's not even close to being a V7!!!!! Jan 29, 2003
Thanks for the Beta!

Totally agree, the traverse is just a blast. Now just have to wait for the Snow to melt away. It was insanely nice up there this past Saturday.

Be fun to try the drop down into Puffing Stone, that never really occured to me until afterwards when I was reading the description here.

The obvious traverse, just staying on the Lip was great tho. Nov 25, 2002
In my opinion there are three boulder problems that start in the same place. Start sitting with your hands on slopers right next to Circadian Rythm. FAST traverses along the lip without using the good pinch hold on the face, continues around the corner, drops down onto the big rail and finishes left and up, i.e. it finishes on the Puffing Stone Traverse. I believe FAST is V7/8, but I have yet to finish it. It seems just a little harder than Seargent Woody at Carter.

You can start on FAST and don't drop down to the big rail and just finish on the lip, which I believe is V5. You can also use the good pinch on the face, which I believe drops the grade to V4.

No matter what the grades are, all the traverses are excellent. Nov 25, 2002

Yes Sean. That's how I understand it. Traverse starting just before the rock bowl to around the corner. Drop down and then finish by doing the Puffing Stone Traverse across the face. Nov 24, 2002
Can anyone explain how this traverses into Puffing Stone ?

Does it drop down once it goes around the corner ?

It seems like if you start the traverse at the rock bowl and then traverse left and top out above the Rock Rails that it would only be around V4-V5. Curious for details on it as a V8.

Thanks. Nov 23, 2002
