This one is up there with the best V0 traverses in the park.

There are many variations to this classic traverse, but the most commonly used is the traverse from left to right.

Start up high and move right on great holds across an overhanging face. Shuffle your feet along the slanting rail, or use heal hooks as you traverse right. Crux move is in the middle of the traverse where a long reach to the right leaves your feet without foot holds. Continue traversing right until you reach the end of the overhang. Heal hook, and mantle to finish.


On the boulder just to the south of the trail next to Swan Slab.


A crash pad is not required.
