This 'traverse wall' as you call it is a fvcking joke. I can't believe anyone would actually put this on RC.com.

Ok, maybe it's obvious, but I'm confused...
Is it a joke because you can flash it with your eyes closed, or is it a joke because it kicks your butt every time you get on it?

Ok dumbass, for the win: find outdoor bouldering within 20 minutes of downtown Raleigh where access isn't a problem. And.....go.

What does the area have to do with sexual preference? Are you asking to delete the area because you're homophobic?

hosh.

The University of Calgary has a similar wall, indoors, in the Kinesiology building. It's very popular, there's always several climbers on problems, and the floor is littered with friends and families, socializing.

Until this summer it was closed because of a flood.

wow, this wall actually looks kind of cool. It's great to see that people take the initiative. I know I would have worked out on it had it been close to where I grew up (New Jersey)

Not anymore though with world class climbing 25 minutes from my front door though ;)

It might be kind of lame.. but dont scoff at whats in your backyard.

I would advise people to check out the Raleigh RockYard or Vertical Edge instead.

Raleigh RockYard is more bouldering oriented than Vertical Edge.

Does the wall actually have sex with other walls of the same gender or just the posting?

dude, no offense, but I'm getting the impression that you guys haven't seen the traverse recentlyMad... Imagine taking a 200ft 5.7 and randomly breaking off holds and foot jibs, then keep doing that for 5 years. THIS IS NOT A V2 ANYMORE> I don't mean to sound like a git, but I on-sighted two 12a routs at NRG yesterday and I still can't send that traverse. So seriously, take another look at this...hell, I'll give you 5 bucks if you can send it...

p.s. If you sent it last semester and are about to bitch at this post, think again; It has a new V6 crux 15ft from the end that will spit your ass off)

Then put your big-girl panties on, go get some two part epoxy or whatever, find a few rocks, and replace the missing holds.

Yeah...maybe you got the wrong impression? I'll be very clear ----> I really like the traverse, i'm tired of people hating on it...it's a tough problem, but it's do-able....not lame by any standard.

as for the panties, rocks, and epoxy, maybe you should save those for a lonely Saturday night. Do you glue holds onto boulder problems that are too tough for you? At least try the traverse before you talk about gluing.

the entire traverse is a glue job - glueing on more stuff shouldn't incite an ethics debate. Hell, glue on way more than necessary, then you can make up eliminates and variations instead of repeating an ever-diminishing line of chips. I don't care for the traverse because it wears shoes out prematurely, the sharp foot jibs will severe and punch through toe rubber way faster than real stone or real plastic.

Well, the shoe part is true, but don't we all have an outdated/ toe-busted pair of old shoes that would be more than happy to take on this traverse? And I still think you are off with this whole gluing frenzy. Maybe that "repeating a line of chips" is true in the sections that everyone can easily repeat...but the gluing was in reference to the crux, which, to my knowledge, has not yet been done. C'mon, lets at least have someone send the problem before we have a hold gluing party.

I would rather see more holds glued on the underside of the staircase to the left, set up some steep problems. You should revive buildering/traversing at the rose garden, off gardner st. Tons of rough cut granite walls filled with tricksy crimps. At one time (80s/90s) you could traverse entirely around the left stage building, or do interesting straight up problems...it may be ivy covered now though.

I know this is a year later than your post but has anyone gotten that problem 15ft from the right end (recently). The problem is ridiculous. I wouldn't call it a V6. There is a only a jib and then a tiny pinch hidden in the seam between the two sections. Was it a V6 before the foothold to the left of the first tiny jib from the crack fell off or after? Currently there is an obvious spot where a foothold should be/was. If any one can get this and is still in the area, I'd love to see it/ learn it. Peace.... Pic to Follow soon

Hey there lovers and haters of NCSU traverse wall, and my stupid-to-begin-with post/thread. It's been a long time since I began this, and it was actually my first post on RC.com, so at the time I didn't really know what it was all about (being a noob to the intardnet forums and all). Anyway, hindsight is 20/20 or something like that, right?

So, apparently the traverse wall is better now? That's great, but I've been too busy actually climbing on real rocks (holy shit!!?!!) to notice. And to you, kneiveltech, I probably did come off as a dumbass to begin with, but really if you met me (and actually I've seen you around at various places) you may not feel the same.
So if my original post has made some of you feel dumber (as it would if it were me reading it)...sorry. You're probably bored anyway, though, don't take shit too seriously.

Yeah, when I got on to rant abt that crux it was still pretty early in the semester and that V6 rating was quite soft.. actually very soft - as in ive worked V10s that went smoother so id probably give that crux (and yeah, it hasnt changed since last fall) a V8-V9 rating.

Beta wise im thinking match on the horizontal crimper, get your left foot on the gybe, and then right hand in the cement crack w/ thumb catch and left hand crimped vertically on the hold.. piece of cake, right? lol

and sammy, who the hell boasts abt climbing outside like its some FoodLion VIP card? We all have the card seth, hope that doesnt damage your vip fantasy.

Depends on the mood...Tongue

Smoothsailor, just saying, I'm not a fan of fragments of debris epoxy-ed onto a retaining wall. I would rather pull on actual stone, that's all. No big deal.
