Description

If you stay low for the entire length of the traverse, the grade is V7, and there are two distinct cruxes that are crimpy and have a shallow pocket or two. Then it's all about endurance.

Location

After crossing through the ridge, angle down and right (southeast?) toward the house. You'll see a barbed wire fence, follow this back up to the ridge, and it will deposit you right at the beginning of the traverse. Apparently the land left of the fence is private.

Protection

One or two pads add comfort at difficult spots. Landing is near perfect though and you're never more than a foot off the ground.

Except for a few sharp pockets, this is an excellent traverse problem. It climbs more like a route because of its length. I've done it several times the low way, and it felt like V6. Mar 18, 2013
