This line goes up the obvious crack to the right of Valley of Bones, up to the top of the rock and then traverses left to the final bolt of that route, continuing to the VOB anchors. The crack is 5.9 and the face traverse is 5.10a. The crack is awkward in more ways than one, but life finds a way. I'm a huge fan of traverses, and the one on this route did not disappoint.

I find it hard to imagine that this hasn't been done before, so if it has message me with details of the ascent and we'll update the info.


To the right of Valley of Bones, as mentioned. I started on the sloping ledge just below the crack.


I placed 3 good pieces in the crack. Bring fingers to #3 and find what works for you.
