Looking for a burly traverse? This line provides some hard, stretched-out moves on good holds, with lots of foot re-adjustments. Powerful, and surprisingly technical. Also pumpy.
Start sitting as for Shake Junt, then traverse up and left through myrad pockets, crimps, and pinches. Figure out how to transition feet left, and gain the jugs on the central "warm up" of the Noir Boulder (doesn't have a name, but it's the easiest "up" line on the boulder). The top-out isn't hard, but don't expect a giveaway.
Begins at the far right of the boulder. Same start as Shake Junt. To wit: sit start with left hand on big hueco and right hand on undercling.

Grading was tricky. Thomas did it first, then me, then Dean. All of us thought it was in the 7-8 ballpark. But that's just three opinions. Personally, I grade traverses based on She Made Me Do It, which I believe is THE benchmark for V8 (locally), and a litmus test for how easy or hard something claims to be. Stone Cold Stunner felt about as hard as She Made Me Do It. Maybe slightly easier, but not by much.
