Traverse Wall, Big Elk Meadows.

Description 

The Traverse Wall is a nice wall, and right on the trail, hosting mostly moderate problems. The landing is perfectly flat, but topping out is still a committing 12 to 15 ft off the ground. The rock is solid and the problems provide a good warm ups for The Sanctuary or the Dragon's Den.

Getting There 

Hike along the creek trail passing the turn for the Dragon's Den. The Traverse Wall hangs over the trail, not more than 15 minutes from the car.

Climbing Season

Face Problem V3-4 6A+  Colorado : Lyons : ... : The Traverse Wall
Start on crimps atop the obvious block and shoot out right to a sidepull/pinch, then do a big lockoff move to reach a triangle-shaped hold (grab the right one, the left one looks better but it's fractured around the edges and creaks a bit.) Tag the lip and finish. A couple of dyno variations look possible on this face as well....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
