Pile Traverse

V0-1, Boulder, 30 ft (9 m),  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
Utah > Wasatch Range > Central Wasatch > Big Cottonwood… > S-Curves > S-Curve - The Pile

Description

Good warm up trav at the bottom of the wall. You can do it from either right or left. If you stop on the good jugs at the right, it's probably v0. If you continue clearly into the choss past the right side of the cliff, it is a v1-2 transition onto that wall.

Fun stuff, good way to warm up before tying into the wall, and this section of the cliff is clean. 

Location

Along the base of the Pile, I like to do it from left, under Gomer Pile, to the right, and finish to the right of the base of Right Pile. 

Protection

watch your back on the right, but the rest of it, you can just step off.
