This excellent traverse is one of the best problems in the area. Start far left on the west face and traverse right using a variety of interesting grips. Round the corner and traverse across the south face as well. One variation, at roughly the same grade, tops out up the Shag Carpet route on the south face. This traverse requires pinch holds, sidepulls, finger pockets, underclings, and very precise foot work. The crux is probably getting around The Goblin arete or perhaps getting to the far end of the south face after you pass the bottom of Shag Carpet. Great, great problem!


This problem traverses the west and south faces of the New Mexico Boulder.


A pad and spotter.
