This is a hoot. Being a fun girdle traverse, this is excellent practice for the aspiring aid climber or an endurance challenge for the visiting boulderer. The climber passes many of the bolts on the other routes and essentially traverses the crag left to right. At times during the traverse, the climber may find one's self less than 3 feet off the ground!! This boulder traverse will most likely be freed soon. It is a pretty lengthy band of rock so the traverse gives you distance. First climbed on a snowy wintery day.


Laminar Flow is a girdle traverse of The Freezer. This is the first sizeable chunk of limestone that one encounters hiking up Freeze Creek from Pioneer Fork Road.


QDs, a variety of hooks. Some pitons and bolts were left fixed, but a few beaks might be helpful

Who changed this to 11a? Maybe 11a A0 but would be much much harder to free.
