BETA PHOTO: The Stair Step Traverse starts just out of the pho...


Move, ledge, move, ledge, repeat.

Still a good warm up and one of Unaweep's few routes under 5.9. The crux is a little spooky so make sure you're solid at the grade before jumping on. The book has you traversing further off left, thereby maybe avoiding the hard move. But why suffer through that kind of rope drag, or break a descent pitch into two just to traverse? Top it out, methinks.


Obvious, stairway-like feature in the center of the wall right of Diagonal Crack. Route meets Diagonal Crack at the top so you could TR that with two ropes if so inclined.


Standard rack.
