A fun finish to the routes on the right side of the crag. From the anchors on Azog climb up and left on big holds to the anchors for Much Ado About Nothing.

Protection 

A few pieces to 3 inches

Be very very mindful of your second when doing this, as you'll need to traverse quite a bit to reach the anchors and it's difficult to protect. Honestly I wouldn't recommend this finish.

I will second Toby's comment - you actually traverse as much as you climb, and the stepover isn't particularly inviting.

An alternative is to climb to the top of the cliff (5.6 but loose) and walk off to the south, climber's right.

Trying to place a #3 on this is stupid. Bring a #4 or nothing.
