Description

Rising traverse along the SE side of The Crab boulder. SDS on the left and follow jugs and slopers at the lip of the boulder until the apex of the overhang at the right end. From a huge jug move up to pockets on the blunt arete and mantel. The crux comes at the end, especially if you get pumped traversing across the lip.

The closest thing to a warm-up in the area, completing the traverse to the jug gets the blood flowing even without the topout mantel.

Unfortunately, The Crab boulder shifted over the 2015-2016 Winter and this problem looks to be no more. The jugs at the lip of the boulder that were previously used to traverse are now less than a foot off the rock shelf, and pretty much underwater when the water level is high.
