|One time while I was bouldering here, I heard what sounded like a drum beating in the distance. It kept getting closer and closer. I wasn't sure what it was, just as my curiosity couldn't take it anymore, this monk wearing Nike running shoes and brown robe, comes jogging down Flagstaff Trail right past me, beating a drum and chanting. We exchanged pleasantries like this was totally normal and both continued with our respective means of quieting the spirit and focusing the body. Only in Boulder!!|

|This is a great traverse with good body positions and interesting feet. You can make it as hard as you want and as long as you want. The wall runs for about 100 feet, but the best part is the first 20ft of the lower part.|

This description is a bit confusing (at least compared to what I've heard).
There are two traverse problems on this wall:
Plain View Traverse (V1) starts on the far right and goes across the face to the huge incut fin/rail and then continues to finish up the left arete. Personally I thought it was hard for the grade but that's Flagstaff I guess.
Lower Plain View Traverse (V5) starts in the same spot but everything above ~5ft or so is off, including the huge rail.
