exit? posted by neil_h ~ 03.10.2008 14:36
Can this problem in the description be changed, so it is clear were to exit.
I spent the day here today and could have easly done the problem on my first attempt, instead witht the amount of chalk at the end of the problem It was dificult to tell which was the true exit. From were christphe exited in the video, I went further left and droped down to the low holds but then found I could not exit without a very hard move which i repeated failed on after doing the long traverse
I just wanted to say that traverses are great but better discriptions of starts and finishes are needed to prevent confusion.

you're right. since four years i am doing traverses and it is often hard to know where it starts, finish and if there is a convention (hlod(s) to avoid)...for this one you start at the crack on the right, traverse to the left with the slopers on the lop of the overhang. the exit is far left.

I know, but it just really got me, as i say i would have done this easy but i got really frustated because I did the end but felt like it should have carried on a few more moves, ehich i tried to do so therefore did not complete the traverse today
I reaaly like to do the traverses in the forest, but i do find a lot of them dont have a proper discription.
