"Driftwood" direct V6/7. Also known as the "Skinner Problem" and "Shark's Tooth." Starts on two tiny matched crimps at chest height. Gets slightly easier as you go, but scarier. Bring plenty of pads and spotters, as the shelf beneath is narrow and drops away. <br />

Sorry about the butt shot - however, this shows the continuation of the Manatee trad traverse. Hand jams and flakes in this section. Feet stay on the manatee side of the gap.
