This a traverse of the entire Buzzard Rocks cliff face. Climb to the bolt on Anonymous Flake and begin trending left. You follow a system of cracks and ledges most of the way, encountering a few awkward moves along the way. Most of the climbing is in the 5.4 range. We set up easy belay stances and trees the entire way. The route ends when you top out on Three Amigos.


Hike to Buzzard rocks and start traversing.


Just bring your trad rack. You'll clip a few bolts along the way, but anything from small stoppers to BD #3 cams will work.
