Description [Edit]

Traverse the entire Cracked Boulder from left to right—an odyssey of hard, awkward, and beta-intensive moves—and finish on Mutants Amok. Begin with left hand on round sloper and right hand on the large edge at the beginning of Le Fissure King.

This is perhaps the most classic traverse in Santa Barbara. Don't leave Skofield without giving it a go.

Location [Edit]

Cracked boulder. You can't miss the baffling line of edges, slopers, and crimps.

Protection [Edit]

Pad, especially for the finish.

Description discrepancy: The proper start for She Made Me Do It is with left hand on the arete. This is how Rick did it, as well as the next several ascents after his. May 31, 2012

I'm a little confused. Isn't the round sloper on the arete? Was he grabbing higher? Are we talking about the same thing? Jun 1, 2012
Ok, I see. The absence of the word "arete" in the description led me to believe there was some other left hold people were using to avoid the entry swinging heel-hook move. (It's been a while). Jun 1, 2012
Also, this is one of the best traverses that anyone will find anywhere. Positively classic. Jun 1, 2012

Agreed: I can't think of a more aesthetic and dramatic traverse. Definitely in my top 10 boulder problems of all time. Jun 1, 2012
