BETA PHOTO: Boxtop Traverse

Description 

From Corridor Crack anchors, move right under the Boxtop summit block. Fun hand traverse under the summit block, a helmet will keep you from banging your head. Birth canal finishes the second pitch. Access the large ledge to build gear anchor and belay second (minimizes rope drag). 3 bolts to summit pitch and rap chains. Rap back to Boxtop Corridor on 60m rope.


Protection 

Starts with small gear and finishes with #1 Camalot. Might want #3.5 Camalot or larger in birth canal. 3 bolts and rap chains on 3rd pitch.

This thing was absolutely wild, the first pitch is great on its own. The traverse to the birth canal finish is wild!
