Description

Great Traverse.

Pumpy at the grade. The hands look fine, but once you've been on them for a while they get pumpy, especially if you are in a bouldering mindset.

Feet are key for this traverse, as they are polished and sparse in places. Use the good hands to traverse left or right and top out if you desire.
In my opinion, traversing right to left then following the arete to topout up by Satan On A Halfshell (V10) is the most classic of the variations on this line.

The right beta will make this climb seem V2, without that beta this climb might seem more like V3+

Location

Obvious horizontal line 5 feet off the ground.

Pad, and someone to move it for ya!

This route is classic fun, but beware of the pump because the feet are small so think about foot placements or else this is incredibly hard. Jan 2, 2009

It's also fun to start on the far left and go as far right as possible. This adds some hard moves going around the corner and a fun top out. It's probably V4ish this way. Nov 26, 2007
