Fun, but the feet through the middle section really make this hard. They are just a little bit too high/small to make the crimps/jugs feel good.

a fun traverse right to left

there is a good kneebar at the left end for those who want to shake it out then traverse back to the right for an extra challenge(probably v3)

Classic, though a little sharp on the hands even after soooo many years of being climbed.
Mark/Joe, what is the record for the number of laps (back and forth) done in a single go? Somehow the number 13 rings a bell. I think PeterM once did 12.

I was trying to remember what my record was, but for some reason it is not coming to me ;). Pete doing 12 or 13 sounds possible though. When completely wired it is almost more of when your skin wears off then pumping out.

I don't remember the # but Pete defintely has the record...

This really is a classic. Lots of varied, delicate movements, and like someone said there are parts of this traverse where the feet are just SO damn tricky!!!
