Description

Linkup of Heavy Traffic and Big Deal.

Start as for Heavy Traffic and move up to the second, bigger hole. Traverse right on edges into the Big Deal finish. Top out on cool slopers. Excellent!

Location

Trojan Boulder, east face.

Agreed. Skipping the biggest hold on Heavy Traffic makes this problem less of a link-up and more of a singular, elegant line.

To wit:

Start with right hand on pocket, left on crimp, set up feet, crank up to gaston-rail with right, cross left hand to sloping crimp-rail, roll out with right to the last rail on Big Deal, then top out.

Done and done. Mar 26, 2012

The first time I made it to the top, it was as described above, going to the biggest high hold on Heavy Traffic, and then traversing directly right onto the Big Traffic crimps (but I was too scared to commit to the top out, so I bailed). I think it is slightly harder and more aesthetic to skip the upper big hold though. Sep 5, 2011
