Sit start on the left and traverse to the right on the big holds. Starts out easy then gets more challenging as you reach the sloper rail section. Continue all the way to the right. Foot placement is key.


As soon as you walk down the steps to the traverse wall, take a left down the hill, pass the first over hanging boulder on your left, and continue down the hill for 50 feet or so, and you will see the top of the Onion.


A crash pad. A spotter to move the pad is nice also.


Onion Roll - lowest traverse from left to right, V7. May 10, 2016
My understanding is that there is a V0 that climbs the upper jugs and exits midway across the boulder, a V5-ish thing climbs through the sloper rail at mid-height and exits far right, and the V7 is the low traverse through the burly slopey gaston action. Great moves if your shoulder can handle it. All three variations start far left and move right. Sep 26, 2010

Alex, for the V7 variation jsut stay low through the sloper rail. It's V3 if you stay high and V9/10 if you go below the sloper rail (super mean gaston, it'll be obvious and feel impossible). Aug 15, 2010

Are there any holds that are out in order to make it a 7? Aug 12, 2010
