Description 

Start on an overhang above a small cave just to the right of Travelers Buttress. Pull the short pumpy overhang to a small ledge. Rest up, the rest is a sustained off-hands pump fest. Continue straight up to stay on Purple Haze or move into the crack out right to continue up the Cross Town Traffic variation. Anchors (good enough) at the top. You need a 60m rope to rap.


Location 

Rap from the crappy anchors to the ground with a 60m rope.


Protection 

Cams .5"-3"
