This is the classic traverse beginning on the far right near consideration and moving far left halfway up the scary, V2 ramp. At the end the traverse busts right and exits on high easy climbing.

There is a rt hand crimp to gain the final topout moves (allowing you to bring left hand into the upper rt part of the large hueco. I'd never seen it before, it's 1/2 pad 3 fingers, but it seems to really make the moves easier. Wondering if this is a new feature?

There are so many variations that the grade will depend on which ones you use. Really fun traverse regardless of how you do it.
