Featured Route For Slickrock Bouldering Area
Start way right, and top out way left. <br /> <br />A jump start to the top out is also a fun dynamic problem.  PG-13 as well.  Bring ALL your foam and have plenty of spotters!

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
