This is the BEST leftward traverse in Durango. It has amazing rock quality and fluid movement. This monster of endurance and power has roughly 7 cruxes ranging from V5-V7. There are several rests, some easy to utilize, some teasingly bad. Overall, it is an amazing feat to link it.

It is one of my favorite climbing accomplishments, and it is really fun to climb 100+ feet of sustained difficult cruxes without having to clip! There are around 82 difficult moves to the victory slab traversing to the finish.


This starts on Sacred Traverse and finishes when you lap the entire boulder back to the starting holds.


1 pad and a spotter.
