A long traverse on decent holds involves a few complicated moves over a butt-dragging rock. Do-able without a spotter if you don't mind rolling off the rock a few times. Thoroughly engaging, and wor

You need to use only the slopers for the top out. The big hole/jug/sidepull up there is out. That makes the top trickier and cruxier :)
