Description

Fun traverse  - Starting on the right go left, staying off the lip, until you can get a kneebar and a shake around the left end. That's one lap. Now head back right for another if you can.

Fun, but the feet through the middle section really make this hard. They are just a little bit too high/small to make the crimps/jugs feel good. Apr 15, 2010

a fun traverse right to left

there is a good kneebar at the left end for those who want to shake it out then traverse back to the right for an extra challenge(probably v3) May 11, 2010

Classic, though a little sharp on the hands even after soooo many years of being climbed.
Mark/Joe, what is the record for the number of laps (back and forth) done in a single go? Somehow the number 13 rings a bell. I think PeterM once did 12. Jan 25, 2012

I was trying to remember what my record was, but for some reason it is not coming to me ;). Pete doing 12 or 13 sounds possible though. When completely wired it is almost more of when your skin wears off then pumping out. Jan 25, 2012

This really is a classic. Lots of varied, delicate movements, and like someone said there are parts of this traverse where the feet are just SO damn tricky!!! Dec 22, 2013

It's cool to see people enjoying a route for so many years. I passed through in 2003 and did it again. It had been raining so I really piled the chalk up! Jun 26, 2017
numerous broken feet, and a few fractured hand holds have added to the challenge and pain factor, but still an old school classic! Jun 26, 2017

Definitely harder than The Wave. The feet are good, just gotta work the sequence. Feb 6, 2019
