Picnic Table Traverse

Location: 
Berkeley Boulders
Area: 
Indian Rock
Formation: 
Picnic Table Wall

Picnic Table Wall is the long, low wall across the street from the main Indian Rock. The Traverse, which goes in both directions, is harder the closer one stays to the ground. The traditional problem stays low enough to traverse the bulge about 1/3 of the way along rather than go above it and to go under the overhang at the end.

A slightly harder variation stays low, no more than 12 inches high for the feet, all the way along. (The traditional traverse of the bulge and the slightly harder finish are shown in the video clips.)
