Description Suggest change

It was named crab traverse for the several crab shells found in the horizontal crack as well as the crab like positioning on the first half of the traverse.

Start on the right or do everything opposite and start on the left which may be more natural but dangerous being tired over rocks at the end. Start in the obvious horizontal crack at the first prominent overlap in the roof. Move left on really good hands and ok high feet. When the crack tapers off you should be above and just right of the main cove. Move to overhanging holds and stay above the cove. A few tricky moves into big pockets moves you down and left of the otherwise blank face. Finish by moving a little lower and around the low overhanging arête.

The leftward variation is advised just to be cautious of the exposed rock on the first few move on the right.

Location Suggest change

Moving across the center of the cave about 15 feet above the water depending on water height.

Protection Suggest change

Water and maybe a spotter
