I believe this is THC.

Description 

This left to right traverse is on the north face of the northern-most Sister.
The traverse angles upwards as it traverses right and the ground also angle upwards, so you never get too far off the ground, making for a nice safe problem.
It has been years since I've been there, but I recall some interesting huecoed rock and fun moves.
This is one of about a hundred problems I did back between 1999 and 2002 (rough estimate of dates).
I think it is my favorite boulder problem at Three Sisters/Alderfer.

Location 

North face of the northern-most Sister.

Hi Bjorn,

I am not sure why the details have not been added here.
I had added them to the profile, yet they do not appear on this page.
I'll add details here in the comments.

Hey Tom,
Thanks for the updated info. I know that the inner workings on the site can often swallow and discard info carefully posted.
Based on your description, I'm quite positive that this is the traverse Pat Peddy showed me to today. Incredibly fun.
Thanks again for filling it in.

I have heard Rufus Miller credited with the FA but who knows when he did it?

If Rufus did it back in the nineties, then I'll give him credit for the FA, otherwise I lay claim. Regardless, it is a super classic for Alderfer.
It is great to see this area finally get some well deserved documentation.

According to Pat, Rufus sent it around 2003. So you are the first.
