Mr Sam sending the traverse.


2 bolts protect 5.11 moves through Chinle trad pro is available but is more pscyhological than legit, first few ascent parties did it w/out the bolts but was made safe at the request/approval of SH. then a slowly widening hands crack to the left fork which widens from new #5 camalots to #6 camalots


Obvious open book Y crack that can been seen from Ruins camp on right side of the wall.


1 of each in BD C4 1-6

great photo of karin budding following the traverse on page 95 of canyon country climbs. the caption only says 'R-rated traverse', so i never knew which route it was until now. thanks for clearing up one of life's little mysteries for me.

After 10 years of climbing, I consider this to be possibly the greatest single pitch of rock climbing I've ever done.

Truly one of the greats. I'd add an extra #1 camalot to that rack above.

This route is definitely awesome!
Not even close to the listed 130'. 70m rope was ample and I imagine a 60m would work.
Also the #6 didn't fit super well at the end, you might want to bring a 2nd #5 instead.
