This shot clearly explains why it is necessary to extend the boly at the thin traverse. This is counter-intuitive because it will lead to a longer fall while executing the traverse, but it prevents the rope drag that makes the BIG run-out that much more difficult and unbalanced.

Although it's quite easy up there, the wind blowing from the right made it a little spooky. It's probably 15-20' up to the anchors from there.
