the traverse


Perfect during lower tides, this large traverse can be found towards the beginning of Otter Cliffs. It is easily over 100 feet long and probably about 20 feet high. You will weave in and out of large pockets and there is no shortage of holds; you have a ton of rock to work with


Park at the very first lot for Otter Cliffs and proceed to hike the trail staying on the top of the cliffs. About a half mile or so down the trail, you will see a large cliff jutting out into the sea at about a 45 degree angle. Start on the far left side of the cliff and keep going until you reach the water


its a pretty easy traverse can be done with no pads or spotters, but they are encouraged due to the large and very rocky landing
