BETA PHOTO: South Face of main boulder showing Long Traverse r...
Crux is going left around the bulgy arete. Whole thing is good with long moves, some dynos, well timed rests, and a sweet topout.
From the starting holds, move left out around the cruxy arete bulge on smallish crimps/sidepulls. Throw to high large hueco on main face before moving down jugs, crimps and rails to a well deserved rest at the huge jug prior to topping out on reachy pockets.
Best problem on the lower boulders.
Start is found around the right side of the main face on primary lower boulder. Start with left hand gaston in chalked up hueco and right hand in small pocket up and right.

I'm pretty sure I did the FA of this traverse back in 1987. While working it out, I broke a hold that I thought was pretty important and Bob Murray instantly whipped out his epoxy kit. I had never seen anyone carry and use epoxy before. I thought "wow...Bob takes this sh*t seriously !!".
