Description:

It was named crab traverse for the several crab shells found in the horizontal crack as well as the crab like positioning on the first half of the traverse. Start on the left or do everything opposite and start on the right right which may be more natural but dangerous being tired over rocks at the end. Start in the obvious horizontal crack at the first prominent overlap in the roof. Move left on really good hands and ok high feet. When the crack tapers off you should be above and just right of the main cove. Move to overhanging holds and stay above the cove. A few tricky moves into big pockets moves you down and left of the otherwise blank face. Finish by moving a little lower and around the low overhanging arÍte. The leftward variation is advised just to be cautious of the exposed rock on the first few move on the right.

3 out of 5 stars FA!

A fun traverse with all fairly easy moves but can become pumpy because you are staying above any good rest ledges. Nearly fell of at the end at the left side arÍte but held on for the OS FA.
