    An interesting and sustained traverse. The line meanders between solid lips to thin edges to slopey desperation. For full value, start far to the right, and top out far to the left (highball). Or stick to the center section of the traverse to keep it safer and bring it down a grade or two.There are two distinct cruxes. The thin section in the middle of the traverse, and the other is the committing top out. The top out is over or under water for the vast majority of the year....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

    CONDITION REPORT 
    Went recently and looks like no one has been for a while...The problems in this area will get better if more people climb. Please climb these rocks! Water level is low this year and most problems are still accessible, and probably will be for majority of summer.
