Bastille - M-F closures. Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


This is a great traverse at the bottom of the West Ridge. Start on an obvious, sharp horn, and work sloping holds into the start of the crack. Follow the crack using crimps, hand jams, and laybacks to an easy finish.


It is just beneath the Allosaur amphitheater.


A pad and a spotter are nice but not necessary.

Darn - with a name like that, I was hoping for a description of a full traverse of the West Ridge - say, a girdle traverse rising up from Morning Thunder and topping out around Knight's Move.
