Description 

The Traverse of the Gods starts on the far left side of the wall and traverses rightward to finish on Thrutch and Wiese. Attempts have been made to continue the traverse across the long low roof, but each subsequent climber has been thwarted...much like those who attemped the Eiger Nordwand before its eventual first ascent.

As it stands now, though, the long traverse offers quite a pump and topping out on Thrutch and Wiese becomes a challenge in its own right.


Protection 

Stamina. Courage. Crash Pads.

very fun route i did it from if you are facing it the far right corner to the far left corner staying under the overhang and taking the calm like a bomb high. if you stay under c.l.a.b. there is a very huge rest, no hands, but i decided it was taking away from the route doing it like that. so..i think there are many variations to be had on it.

Just to clean this up a bit can we change the grade to V3 and get rid of the snow ratings lol?

Also two of the consensus ratings are for "Sexytime Traverse" and should be removed from TTotG

I can't alter anyone else's rating so the "consensus" on this one will be off if they refer to another climb.

But I did change the listed rating.

Well hes going to have to kill himself because I think he has photos of the crag, and no one else seems to have been there in years lol.

I did the likely FA of this route in the 1990's, and there was snow on it. So the snow rating stays. It's not my fault that global warming has changed the nature of the route.
