Is it better to lead or follow traversing routes?

This route starts far past Illusion Dweller across from Bikini-Whale.

Make an approach through a thicket to a left arching flake with a hand crack, mantle a cool block and go left past 3 closely spaced bolts. Gain a fantastic horizontal rail and traverse left past a couple more bolts to a bolted belay/rap anchor.

This is the first pitch of the six pitch route New Latitude 5.12a by the same hard man team.


Sentinel West Face, a ways right of Rubberfat. Go to Bikini Whale, turn around and face the Sentinel.


Draws and a handful of TCU's in the finger to thin finger size. A large cam could work to protect the move onto the block if needed but a small cam goes just a little lower.
