Description 

About 15 yards uphill from the Mega is a large roof (fun fun!) and some cliff and rebar. Another 20 yards or so uphill are the triangle like starting jugs to this traverse. Climb left (uphill) keeping feet out of the dirt about 30 feet until one reaches around (watch for a loose block!) to a rail to the left of the loose block, step onto the boulder after reaching the rail. This might be as easy as V2 or as hard as V3 depending on sequence taken, a bit higher is generally easier. Are you really a fan of the pump? Then try this: start at the very bottom of the tropics and traverse the whole damn cliff through the mega, finishing with this traverse. Haven't had enough, then reverse it all!

Protection 

Spot or pad not needed, but nice to keep shorts from getting dusty. Watch to not grab the loose block at the end, and for loose holds, as this area doesn't receive as much traffic as the lower sections of the tropics.
