BETA PHOTO: Tarantula Traverse


Start on the far left by a serviceberry bush. Negotiate past some slopers to a rail, then past some thin moves to a crimper rail. Many eliminates possible.

Called V2 (and "a good endurance test for intermediates") by Sherman in Stone Crusade. Called V3 in a later guide. You decide.


In the bouldering corridors to the right and below the main face.


It's a traverse, you can go padless like generations did before...

Really cool traverse that can be done either way. Varied movement: crimpers, slopers, side pulls, reaches, smearing. This climb had it all.
