The long pumpy traverse along lower East Creek in East Creek Canyon. This is along HWY 141 at the bottom of Nine Mile Hill. Anyone know the name of this?

OK! Is there any consensus on a rating for the entire traverse?

Consensus had been V7 starting just right of the dirt hill and finishing at the vertical/choss section. This rating was what locals and guides alike (R&I etc) had said.

V7 really? I don't boulder anywhere near that hard and it seems like most of it is about V0 but there are a couple of moves that I cannot do. One of these is on a pretty blank, bulging section near the right end. Is that the crux? So, would it be correct to say that it is mostly V0 with a few much harder moves?
If anyone more knowledgeable wants to create a routes database entry, go for it and I'll try to move the pictures.

Yeah, but there are 3 cruxes, and the thing is 70 ft long. I have climbed .14 and V13... and would call the route a .12+...if you start as far left as you can, climb down the incline, on the slightly sloping dirt hill, and traverse in.

How do you get to this route? I have looked for it every time I drive by it and still am not sure where it is.
