Dave on the easy V0 section, a decent rest can be ...

Some areas require a guide.

Description 

Traverse the long overhanging wall from right to left. Sit start on Jugs behind a bush and finish left of the groove where the angle lessens. The top while not required is easy and doesn't have too much loose rock.

The first 10 feet are the hardest and consist of a V4 / V5 boulder problem. After this it is just a matter of fighting the pump, through mostly easy V0 climbing with two short V2/V3 moves.

Location 

The obvious long overhanging traverse. Walkoff on either side.

Protection 

Pad and Spotter, the traverse is pretty low, so not much protection is needed.
