Description

Ah yes, the Smausser Traverse Thing. Great fun indeed. Begin by climbing the first 30 of the The Braille Trail, passing 2 bolts and a gnat or two, until it deposits you on top of the giant flake. Follow the bolts that traverse right until you end at the anchor for The Penetrators, and The Shadow.

Don't forget to protect your second after the last bolt!

Location

Far left side of the Brown Wall.

Protection

Bolts and gear (TCUs/ wires). A couple of runners are helpful.

I added long chains to this in April '15 and left 'biners on them for convenient lowering. Enjoy! Jul 13, 2015

This thing is really fun, excellent thin traverse moves lead to easier gator skin and horizontals. The original finish goes straight up to the top of the wall from the last bolt. There are two bolts with quicklinks just over the lip. These need to be extended with some chain really bad - even if you rapell the grating on the lip is pretty severe. Next time I get on it I'll bring some 16" pcs. of chain to fix it. Jan 30, 2011
