Description

This is one of the most obvious problems here. It turns out to be harder than it looks. There are lots of jugs, but sometimes tricky moves are required between them. A round trip on this can provide a pump (if you don't milk the good rests too long).

Location

Start on the left or right.

Protection

There is a nice, flat, sandy landing under most of it....

Nice addition, Mark! I really enjoyed this traverse. I found the crux to be about V1 for a couple moves, but most of the traverse is much easier. There are definitely ways to make this harder if so desired. It's a great place to get a quick workout without pads or a partner. I added what I creatively dubbed "Center Route" (V0) to this wall, which I found to be a great line also. Center Route has top out holds, but the other possible lines may require some insecure mantle moves to top out from what I could see at the top. I may bring pads up here at some point to explore the other lines I was checking out on this wall. Does anyone know if there are any established lines on here? I don't think I have ever seen this boulder in a book or anything. Jul 17, 2015
