Description

The ultra-mega link up traverse. Start on Cave Roof underclings. Move right through the crimps of Cave Overhang to the undercling flakes. Keep moving right to the crimp and flake as for Rump to Jump, but keep moving right rather than climbing up. At the start holds of the Cave Warmup, keep moving right but starting trending upwards (this is the crux). Finish up into good horizontal crack and an easy topout.

Originally, V10, but a hold broke. It was then unclimbed for some years until local strong man Mike Galoob re-established it. Feb 25, 2012

What is the consensus grade on this now (after all of the breaks in the last 3-4 years)? After Ty came back and sent I heard numbers as high as 13.

It has seen a recent send (after the 2012 and 2013 breaks of the Gassed Off traverse) by Jake List. Anyone get his opinion on the matter? Aug 9, 2013

I somehow pulled off this legendary traverse today and for me I think V12 seems fair. Nick Orange and S├ębastien Lazure were able to do it earlier this year and they gave it a grade of V12 as well. It's hard and I guess that's all that really needs to be stated. As far as the climb goes I thought it was really fun. Not the purest line or the best rock quality but the movement really makes up for it. Definitely the power endurance test piece of the area and a proud tick nonetheless! Dec 29, 2017
