Description

This is a no hands traverse, so a true send is constituted by not touching the rock with your hands at all! Knees are fine on this though. The traverse goes from left to right and is started by stepping from the "starting block" at the far left onto the low edges of the wall, avoiding the large feet. Follow small edges along the wall before "topping out" at the far right side before the tree. You can make the traverse as short as you like, but the longer you wait to top out, the harder it gets. This is a great problem for practicing footwork, as you need to be very precise to avoid falling off.

Location

Right behind you if you're looking at Desperado and Crack Face, just to the right of Nemesis.

Protection

A couple pads I guess, but you're never more than a few feet off the ground.

Keep it low if you want to make it all the way across!
