This fun traverse begins all the way looker's left of the boulder to a larger tree that has been shaped by the rock. Start left at the tree on good pocketed holds. Cross into the big elephant ear hold and make your way easily around the corner. The last third is the cruxier section, using sloper handholds and edgy/balancing feet. Slap your right hand to the arete, making your way up on good holds.


The start begins by a large tree shaped by the rock, on good pocketed holds. The downclimb goes down the opposite side.


A pad would be nice. You wouldn't really want to blow the topout.
