This is basically an added 20ft of easy but fun jug pulling to further stress your endurance.
Stand start at the far right arête. Look under the corner "sloper knob" for the massive pocket jug and match that for the start hold.
traverse from right to left staying low and climb all the way around the left arete and onwards, staying low to the ground, until you get to the left side of the left face to finish up through jugs. I topped out through the jug break past the huge jug horn.
The problem follows the primary features in the middle of the face (uncut jugs, the big ledge, knobs, crimpy pocket slots). Your feet are always fairly close to the ground until you reach the very end.
