Description 

The Kama Sutra Area is home to a couple of grueling traverses across the cliff face as well as several more moderate problems on the boulders near the carriage road below.


Getting There 

A little bit past the Pebbles Boulders as you walk north up the Undercliff Road. If you reach the East Trapps Connector trail (AKA the Stairmaster) you've gone to far. The problems are on the cliff and boulders near and below Maria and Sixish.

It's "Not the Kama Sutra Traverse" (V2) but that doesn't mean that it's not worth doing.  Start By <a href='/v/sixish/105968658'>Sixish</a> and traverse across the face all the way to <a href='/v/bloody-mary/106444608'>Bloody Mary</a>
