Rena moving through the traverse... tamarahastie.c...

Description 

A great power endurance traverse, following a continuous line of holds along a weakness in a wide roof. Start at the far right side of the line of huecos under the overhang. Steep pockets and slopers lead to a crux crossing the steepest portion of the roof with sloping huecos and undercut feet, finishing at a right-facing jug. Match this hold and head left to a vertical topout.

Check the holds for spiders before attempting.

Location 

Right-left traverse of the line of holds under the roof. Walk off.

Protection 

Most of the traverse is low to the ground with the exception of the crux and topout, bring enough pads to cover (or a spotter to move your pad.)

Any chance of some better directions and location here?

Check the section page for the location of the wall. Basically, just walk along Howard's Draw past Bad Ass and look very carefully up on the side of the hill on your right. The feature is unmistakable.
