My vote for best traverse at the Happies. Very diverse. Start on the chalkstone and head left, exiting at the far left of the wall before the crack/alcove.

The beginning offers steep gym-like moves, while the end sports a pumpy crux going through a scoop feature. This is a popular after work training route for a lot of Bish locals. Feels more 5.13- than V7. Climbable in the summer in the evenings, though you should probably be climbing somewhere else...


West rim; Trail heads up to the rim near the Totty Boulder.

A grade of 5.13a is more appropriate.

Well after fighting to figure out how to get through the crux moves I finally figured out the best way to charge through this monster traverse. Not sure if there was a specific way to do this but this is what worked for me.
