The Evolution Traverse (5.9 VI) is widely considered the greatest of the Sierra ridge traverses. After making the traverse for the first time, Peter Croft is said to have remarked, "it is the best traverse I have ever done." With over 8 miles of technical terrain and nine peaks over 13000 ft, it dwarfs the well-known Thunderbolt to Sill Palisade Traverse and is harder than the seldom-repeated Minaret Traverse.
Join us at Caltech in Pasadena on Tuesday, November 1, 8:15 pm as Michelle Peot, also known as fossana
