This fun traverse runs along the base of the wall and is useful as a good warm-up before roping up as well as being enjoyable on it's own. It's often done from left to right by starting from the hand crack of More Punk than Funk and climbing to a boulder at the base of Straight, No Chaser. Drop off or climb back the opposite direction for a full lap.
Traversing further in either direction is possible and only adds to the difficulty but the portion described is the most popular section. The real challenge is to traverse the entire wall which would likely be quite a bit harder (V7?).

Starting just left of Orange Tapestry (deadpoint up to decent holds), it can be traversed left to right at about V4 (going high through vicinity of Joe's Problem and "Buckets...") or V5 if you stay low the whole way. It should be possible to start even further left, but the rock isn't so great and there are some evil holds.
