Description 

A fun traverse arete that can be done in even really broken and old sneakers (like mine).

Sit or stand start on the arete, get your feet up onto the obvious giant foothold out right, and then traverse all the way up the arete, using toehooks if you want. Traverse the lip out left a few more moves after the arete ends so you can get to a spot for an easier top out.

Location 

In the Movie Gallery Area. On the same boulder as Hot Rod and Bladerunner, but on the side you approach the boulder from. If you're looking at Hot Rod this is the obvious arete on the other side of the boulder.

Protection 

1 pad is plenty. Landing is flat, there is a rock you may want to pad to protect your head if you blow the topout though.

This is another climb that I wouldn't be surprised if it's been done before. It's a really fun one though and a great warm-up. I'll try to get a pic next time I'm out there.
