BETA PHOTO: Hand Traverse in sector 8 Cosmiques of Rush C. Han...


Sustained fun moves. If only it were longer - (well it can be made lots longer, but going higher is mostly scrambling).

Diagonal left up the crack, then step up right through notch. Scramble up to a convenient place to build a Trad anchor.

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.


In the center of the (gentler) left side of sector Cosmiques, with some broken loose left-facing ramps (and at least one bolt) on its left and a more-than-vertical 25-ft-high face to its right.
Below some dramatic vertical fins higher on the wall, at the right end of a diagonal crack going up right to left to a notch.

Leading: standard Trad rack. Long slings might be helpful for building anchor around protruding rocks.

No fixed hardware for top anchor or for leading as of 2016.

Plan to bring your own equipment to leave behind to descend by rappel (unless you expect to down-climb the route).
