Super fun traverse with cool movement and foot beta.
Start far left on a jug and traverse the lip with the difficult transition into the beautiful crack. continue to traverse and top out in the notch. I don't know whether or not the ramp below the crack is on but I never use it, just keeps it a little more interesting.

Probably a bit easier than Mack's traverse.


Backside of the great slab boulder.


A moving pad, or just one under the crux but it is a relatively safe landing throughout.

FA - Dan Murray, early '70s. The original Wave was just a stand up version of the arching crack. It was then combined with Boyd's Edge Traverse (the start) to make the much better version. Jan 21, 2012
