An excellent traverse to improve footwork skills. Many variations possible. Edges and smears with occasional hands.


Located in the area known as "The Canyon," just west of the Canyon Boulder. Traverse is on a long, low-angle, 8-10 foot high wall with a broad, flat area above. Begin at west or east end of the formation. Easy walk off.


None needed if taking the low option.

I've also heard this called the Beer Can traverse, because you could do it without putting down your beer. Jun 4, 2013
