Starts on "Geriatric" and follows the weakest line right through "Annadonia" to "Looking For Lust." Surprisingly fun and long.

Awesome climb. Just be sure to bring some 24" runners to reduce rope drag. Much better alternative then the super slick start of looking for lust.

not that great. the bottom section of looking for lust is awesome. it seems like a shame to skip it for this dirty traverse.
