Traverse the Boxcar Woody Boulder in a Clockwise direction starting on it's Left (south) side beginning on a perfect, flat two hand rail start.

Warm up on the easy V0 wall and turn the corner to a short slabby wall to warm up the feet. Next, drop down around the corner (watch out for the barbed wire fence) and continue traversing the wall. Staying low for a pumpy sustained V2+ on big loaf pinches and crimps or head up high for a more relaxed and less steep variation. Get a good rest on some nice jugs before turning the corner and fighting your way through the last 12 ft of pumpy, sequential crimps and edges (stay low for the V5 or go high to the rim for a V1 finish) before finally pulling around the last corner and back to the start.

You can customize the traverse to make it as hard or easy as you like but staying low the whole way is the original traverse.

When you get it wired, give yourself a challenge and see how many times you can make it around without falling off.
