Start at Chockblock Chimney and traverse to Grants Crack (5.9). Stay low.

V4 variation is done by not using the vertical crack near the start.

Can be extended at least as far as Diagonal Crack (5.6) for a super-fun V2-V4 traverse well over 200 feet long.


Spotter + pad for the higher sections

I worked on extending this traverse for many years, but never got to my end goal of finishing with an ascent of Snowman. The moves around the corner and past the start of Slanting Crack are pretty hard. Feb 14, 2018
