Description

The great Chimacum Rock Traverse!!! No need to rope up for this one. Start as far left on the main wall as you can (just to the left of the start of Dinner Plate) on good holds. Traverse (head right), staying close to the ground, along the base of the wall around the corner to the big heuco/cave...rest here. Continue traversing right, going over the fire pit and around the corner that follows to a balancy section and a jug rest (get a good one because the crux follows). Start moving quick through the V5 boulder problem that trends up and right under the obvious pocketed route (feet are pretty close to the ground here). The crux move involves a cross through to a three finger sidepull followed by a big reach around the corner. One more move to the dihedral crack where we will call it quites. This has been done all the way around the rock but after the crack the rock quality goes way down. If it's raining start in the big heuco and it may be dry all the way through the crux (this only eliminates one crux section near the beginning). This route may sound stupid but when we did it back in the day it was awesome!!!

Hi Josh. I did this traverse back in the 1990's. On a later visit I broke off holds that I had cleaned and thought were pretty solid. It is a good workout but helped me decide the crag isn't worth many visits. Jan 28, 2017
