Start on the back (low angle) side of the Y boulder next to the crack that runs through the center. Traverse out left around the entire boulder back to your starting point. You start on a vertical easy face and quickly pull around the corner on sloapers and a steep face until you burrow into the wide crack that splits the center. Drop down making good use of hand jams in the crack and move back onto face moves and around the steep corner. Stay below the top lip of the rock on desperate sloapers and the occasional jug. Keeping your ass off the ground is a challange for a large part of this side. Keep traversing staying below the lip utilizing heel hooks for rests and pull over the last despirate crimps back to the low angle side where you started. This traverse is the longest at the Nut Tree Boulders so endurance is the key. Make the most of any rests you find.

3 out of 5 stars Long

Pumpy traverse. As soon as you pull around the first corner it's full on. You can get a good rest in the crack, but after that the rests are just slow drains. Just keep moving. None of the moves are harder than the Copper Head traverse on the Boxcar but it's a little more sustained.
