The finishing traverse on Where's Poppy.  Seems like there could be a direct finish going straight up.

[Hide Comment] Fun climbing up zig zagging cracks. At the crux I made a tough 11a/b move to the right side of the bolt and came to a very very tough clipping stance and took the whip. Next go I went left of the bolt to an obviously flake and it was much easier but wasn't as natural of a line. Thanks for developing this area. Many fun climbs on granite that will only get better with more time Oct 1, 2016
