a very very small section of the marathon traverse...

Description 

This climb starts on the north face of the mushroom boulder and goes clockwise to the topout by the tree on the south side of the boulder.
This problem is a very pumpy and challenging traverse with your hands and right heel up on the top and your left legs getting in the way the whole way around the boulder.

Location 

See above.

Protection 

Just stand up.
