Dave J. on the mega classic traverse.
Awesome, must do, classic traverse with a heart breaking final move. It is the complete opposite of Try Again so for the full diversity of V5, do them both in a day to work endurance and power.
Start with the Sit Down Problem to the lip, then begin the rightward traverse on slopers and slopey crimps using heel hooks and some feet under the roof. when you reach a decent horizontal, make the strenuous top out. The move isn't too tough, but the feet are awkward and you're probably pumped enough.
Oh yea, expect some scraped forearms, some of the slopers are tucked back a foot or two.
back side of split rock, starts with sit down problem and traverses the lip right - see pic.
pad(s). It is low off the ground, but a pad is nice over the finish...or anywhere else if you haven't figured out the beta.

Stiff (esp. last moves) but still a V4/V4+, so I agree with John.

Great problem to work if you don't have any spotters. Don't forget to breath!
