Description

The Hurley Traverse is probably the most often used exit pitch for routes that end at the Cave. Even though it's rated the same as the Cave exit, it's much more straightforward than that Chinese puzzle.

Start by climbing partway into the Cave and, looking for the line of least resistance, traverse straight right across the wall using small but positive holds until you can round the corner and head up easier ground to the top.

Careful with rope drag on this exit pitch. Climbing is all there (it is right on at 5.7 and not hard), but too much of an extension can put you at the deck. Know how to back clean. I ended up only using 3 pieces (one at the start that I later unclipped, one directly under the slot you climb through, and I had a nut higher up in the slot). I had a completely vertical rope line, but it was at the cost of keeping it G rated. May 18, 2018
