Description

Cross Town Traffic is a variation and continuation to Purple Haze.

Beging climbing up Purple Haze. Once you climb over the bulging crux above the small ledge, start looking for a way to traverse across the face to the right and into the thin overhanging crack that's mostly hidden from view until you get there. Perfect fingers and some hands on a slightly overhanging wall. What more could you ask for?

Location

Start on Purple Haze and traverse out right after the difficulties into an overhanging finger crack. You can kinda see the route from the ground.

Protection

Cams, .4"-1". Nuts, 1 set.
