This excellent traverse is found on the north face of the same outcropping that forms the south face of the Amphitheater. Approach as for Mongolian Cosmonaut but go up a little higher and northeast. A beautiful, scooped, overhanging wall with a flat boulder at its base is below. Sadly some jerks with spray paint have defaced this wall, but the climbing is still good.

Start at an obvious chalked jug and traverse right past some OK edges to a good sidepull. The initial steep section is the crux with poor feet and little room for error thanks to the boulder directly behind you. The remainder of the climb is much easier but fun and a worthy V1 in its own right. A good shady option for warmer days.


This lies NE of Mongolian Cosmonaut.


A couple of pads to line the boulder behind the crux.
