Description

This is a more difficult but straightforward alternative to the Hurley Traverse. Instead of heading into the Cave, simply climb straight up the wall you'd normally traverse.

Protection

I've only done it once, as one of my first 5.9 leads, and I remember my partner wincing as I almost fell before getting in my first piece of pro. I think all I could finagle for my first couple pieces were some sketchy stoppers. It's a very short pitch, but even a short fall here onto that ledge would make for a heinously painful descent.
