Description

Many variations of the Pacific Street Traverse.

Most start with the Dragons Neck Traverse V0 on the left side, making delicate moves right past undercling to jugs.

High Pacific Street Traverse V3-5 Do dragons neck but continue to the corner, at the corner pull onto sloping lip at right (I like to dyno it) do moves with few feet to reach a good hold on lip and geet feet right into leaning crack. A powerful slap to a rounded jug leads to fun moves on the positively cut lip continue around the final arete and top out or step off near Pinscar Crack.

Location

Left most side of Pacific Street Wall.

[Hide Comment] The low traverse is super fun and balancey. Finish on pinscar crack for a pumpy finale. Probably a 3 but it feels harder cause its so long. Goes from r-l or l-r. May 9, 2013
