Description:

This is a beautiful layback above "The Jungle" on Fingertrip Traverse. Yeah, it is 5.10, but every stance has a great finger lock to place gear from and as a 5.9 leader, I found it to be easy. I did it all passive except a #2 camalot I placed just for the heck of it.

4 out of 5 stars Cool

Beautiful P3 dihedral. Exciting P2 slab. P1 seemed contrived, so we started cliff left at a cool easy flake feature. Don't fall at the P2 start.

5 out of 5 stars It is pumpy

But fun. Did P1 of Fingertrip Traverse to get to El Camino. Finished up on P3 of Jensen's Jaunt I believe.

4 out of 5 stars Pumpy

sucka with good stances for gear until the last 15 feet. Had a foot slip out a move below grabbing top, got a little interesting as the cam I had in decided to half work. A real nice clean line that I hope to do again. The traverse on the pitch above the lieback is cool too.
