Rusty Reno, making the mixed crux look casual. New Year's Day 1989.

Cool photo! At first I thought it was photoshopped, then I realized that the rock must really have been black and white!

I found this traverse to be the crux of the route for me. My partner (seconding on a top-rope, of course), found the traverse to be easy and had much greater difficulty on the third pitch.
