The KNS traverse begins as The Rail, but instead of following it up to top out, drop below it and begin a tough traverse all the way to the right side terminus of the wall. Stay below the lip on the sandy slopers and crimps and keep your feet high on the sandy skirt of rock. The crux is near the end. Topout to feel a sense of completion.

The route can also be done in reverse starting on the farthest right crimps and is best if you finish by topping out The Rail. The reverse version ending into The Rail topout is V7/8.


Although the ground isn't far, you can fall awkwardly and the slope and slippery sand doesn't help. A few pads at high risk spots or just a spotter and a pad should be enough.
