Description

Distinct crux sections on this traverse are encountered going into and coming out of both the central and west alcoves. Each alcove provides options to either remain low and underneath a roof, or reach out of the roof and climb the lip/roof edge. All options end high and work back down on 5.10+ terrain. It is possible to traverse from left to right, but the standard traverse starts upstream and traverses to the left. For a true endurance test, try the out-and-back.

Location

Upstream of Mosquito Bridge. The start is marked by a large boulder, climber's right of the bridge cracks.

Protection

Maybe a pad or spotter. Landings are on flat rock.

Projected on this for awhile a couple of summers ago. It is a very fun and worthwhile problem. The setting is fantastic and the route is stout. If I ever had a chance to spend a couple of days in Placerville to train on it again I would like to try and get it back and forth. Jul 23, 2018
