Description 

Hand, toe, heel, hand...repeat...All Along The Diphthong traverses an undercut lip on quality stone over a very good landing.

Sit start or squat start (I could do the sit with a cheater pad, but I couldn't reach it otherwise) with hands on a pair of pinches and place a right heel. From there, traverse left along the sloping lip until the apex, then crank onto the slab, and top it out.

Location 

It climbs the east lip of Strappado.

Protection 

At least a few pads. The problem covers a lot of ground, but the landing is pretty good. There is a rock behind where the problem climbs, but it never presented an issue.
