Hi. I'll have an opportunity to follow Perhaps (5.7) in the Green A Gully a few weeks from now, but I wanted to ask before hand what people thought of the 2nd pitch traverse. I must admit to having some anxiety about it. How hard is the under-cling? spencerparkin

It's somewhere between 5.fun and 5.easy. No worries... you'll have a blast :-) Tapas

P3 on the Nutcracker.
Go in the morning to avoid heat. Plus shoes stick better. Have fun on it. One of the first climbs I followed. Josh Allred

the glorious pitch 7
Bring lots of long runners and strategically use them or rope drag will suck. PS it gets afternoon shade. brian hess

Many thanks to all who responded. I'm feeling much better about this climb now. :) spencerparkin

I'll add that when I was there in the fall, there was a stuck cam on that traverse. If it's still there, it's a permanent fixture, so don't waste your time/energy trying to free it from the wall (which I did for 10-15 minutes, before the guy who led finally let me know that it wasn't his cam). Not one of my best moments. J Helms

In many places you can do a hand jam if you don't feel secure with the under-cling method. Just remember, don't fall or you will die...or at least scratch your legs if wearing shorts. rging

Have the leader bring a #4 to place at the very end of the traverse. That way if you're gripped about the traverse and the subsequent downclimb you can do it on TR and have the leader scramble back up to retrieve the #4.
Make sure to milk the good edges for feet and step down to relax your back, being hunched over for 100+ feet isn't too pleasant...

It's actually a 15' traverse on the first pitch that has the only 5.7 move on the route. Make sure your leader puts something in after that before climbing over to the anchors. I've seen someone take quite a long sideways fall there. The move isn't trivial. The second pitch is much easier, just really long.
Have fun.
