Description

This popular traverse requires more finger strength and finesse than most other problems found at this area. A stiff edging shoe and decent reach also help those of us who lack ballet-like finesse. Start on the far right of the east face in an obtuse dihedral and traverse left past a slightly painful two-finger pocket and to a thin crux. Continue traversing, finishing with the easy V0 (#3 in the pic), or top out straight up from the crux as for #2 in the pic.

Location

This is problem #1 in the east face Left Plethora/Left Gonad picture.

Protection

A crash pad is quite sufficient.

There's now a sit start to this that starts with the left hand on the large block foot and right hand around the corner on the good down facing side pull. Goes at about V7/8 if you top out straight up and not traverse all the way to the V0. Mar 9, 2012
