The Sacred Traverse.


On the west face of the boulder, start matched on a flake. Traverse climber's left through many boulder problems no harder than V4 or V5. The traverse climbs like a route, so expect it to be more like a 12d/13a with defined rest in it. It ends on a big, flat jug before the mega hard extension called Golden Arms. This traverse is incredible and absolutely a Sailing Hawks classic. So, if you can't find a rope partner, this is the next best thing.

For the locals, we're starting a speed trail. Why not? Try to do sacred as fast as you can. As of 12/5/15, I was able to do the whole traverse in 2 minutes 16 seconds. Nolan Robertson and Erik Durgin destroyed my time shortly afterwards. Post your times on this page through ticks or comments.

2 minutes 7 seconds. I don't think anyone can touch Nolan's time of 1:41.
