Working the traverse about halfway through.
This route starts at the very right of the wall, and traverses left to topout at the same flake seen on the "High Flake
" route. It is a very fun and fairly long problem with some interesting beta to be chosen. This is a classic Flagstaff traverse.

There is a good low variation that uses some big slopers and a thin crimp that adds a little more challenge to this classic and bumps it to V5. It's an SDS that starts with both hands on a sloping pinch, moves left slapping more slopers, and joins the regular traverse at the first set of jugs. From the jugs, continue staying low to an undercling and cross through into the crack at the mid-point. Recommended. I tried for years but was never able to send the final 6-8' low variation from the crack to the prominent rail, but Ben Greenwood sent it in short order when I showed it to him about 5 or 6 years ago.
