Start this traverse by mounting the undulating, west face. Traverse left, encountering technical moves, involving friction, steep face, then back to steep friction as you spiral around the pillar to top out up the west face route! You'll like this!

This is an awesome problem! So wild, fun and exciting, it climbs like a route. Technical smearing around the north side of the boulder leads to the crimpy south face and, then, what I found to be the crux of it all, the bulgy rounded SW arete, where you pull onto the west face for the final moves to the top. A good spotter/pad dragger goes a long ways on this one. Feb 21, 2013
