Dan on Under Pressure, gunnin' up the traverse.


This has the same start as Twin Cracks and One for the Road. Follow 6 bolts heading out and right to a two bolt chain anchor.


The route is just right of Twin Cracks and One for the Road with an obvious, right-trending ramp up to an unseen belay stance.


At least a #2 Camalot to protect before the first bolt, 6 QDs, 2 bolt anchor.

I was able to use a #1 before the first bolt. The first bolt is about 25-30 feet off the ground. It is pretty easy getting to it though and a really fun route.

Thanks, Jay Brown, for replacing the last bolt of this climb with a new one. The old (original) bolt was pretty manky!
