The end of the crux


Start on the leftside of the crack and traverse to the right using percise feet and think heel hook for the end. the crux is the mantle onto the slab. If your foot blows off on this move it could result in a gash on you legs and an awkward fall onto your side (i bruised my elbow falling here). An optional finish but a fun finish is up A Cheval. The holds can be sharp on this and a little crumbly. This is a fun traverse though.


Just right of the Dog Cracks, on the Barn Door Boulder.


Pad and spotter.

I think there is a pretty big section of rock that fell out on the low traverse I believe making one of the opening moves easier... if anyone else can confirm this please let me know...

Seems like V4 is a inflated rating given how the rest of the area is rated...

Did you do the mantle? Thats the crux. Also if you are short this climb is easier because you can keep your feet under you better. I am six feet and found it necessary to be horizontal a few times. I thought it was a solid V4.

Climbed this one again today, I think I enjoy it more everytime I get on it. Still feels solid v4 to me... What are you guys doing to make this thing feel easy? Just gotta get stronger I guess...
