Description 

This tricky traverse boasts perhaps the shortest approach in Jackson. A huge array of big, polished holds promote a number of sequences at the many cruxes. Everybody seems to have their own way to go. A fun way to get a deep pump. Character is way different than the less-steep edges of Lower Blacktail.

Location 

The chalked, polished-looking piece of stone you come to at the first break in the stairs.

Protection 

Maybe a spot to ensure you don't gap the big erosion bars! No need for a pad.
