UKC

29m. A right-to-left traverse taking in some hearty terrain. From the first moves of Stop...Carry on!, continue leftwards with either protection or jugs, but never both. Follow the line around the nose to Calcutta Crack (possible belay), then finish more easily.

βeta: This route should come with a warning for the second! My partner protected the traverse as much as he could, but I was still destined for a ground fall for the majority of the route. Not for timid seconds. It’s hard to know you are on the right line, but if it it helps you are aiming for hand traversing the second nose, which is directly under the massive nose/roof. It’s dusty to start, but holds appear. Well worth seeking out. Some great positions.
