The South Side Traverse is the longest traverse of its grade in the area. With a length of over 150 feet, it is a great warm up for a day's session. Although some of the rock is sharp, the moves are great, and like much of the beach climbing, it provides variety as the sand levels change during the year. This traverse pretty much always has sand landings when others in the area don't. Becuase of the southern aspect, it can be warm and wind free on a sunny winter day. Try it both directions for different moves.
This traverse is located just west of the southern trail variation, on the south face of Houda Point.
