Pulling on vines on the "Tarzan Traverse"
Chris Marks (berkly) doing the first ascent of this fine route. I had been eyeing this thing for years but always thought that it was filled with poison ivy. As Matt and I were trying Corndog, which is located just to the right of the crack, I suggested to Chris that it would make a fine first ascent. He agreed and quickly sent it while stripping the vines out of it as he climbed. This route is very classic. It has a kinda scary "no hands" traverse down low and then a good crux near the end that felt like solid 5.9 to me. Great climb for a guy on his first trip to Crab Eyes!!!
