If you like slot bouldering, are hard up for something to do on a rainy day, or are stuck at the Roof Wall without a partner then you might consider trying this.
It is a rising, overhanging right-to-left (what else?) slot traverse in the mini-cave/slot just above and north of the Lower Ramp where it takes off up and west from the Roof Wall. The problem starts on a good, flat jug in the slot about 15 feet above the base of Dangerous Acquaintances and moves left along the slot, both under and at the lip, until you enter the opening moves on the Wisdom and can step off to the left.
The landing is a bit steep and slick in places so take care to step off before you fall off. Some flakes look suspect as well (one seems to be held on with a wad of chewing gum)! This is a fairly continous, pumpy rig with about 50 feet of climbing on it -- it just happens to be in a grotty spot.

A 50-foot V9 traverse into the Wisdom yields a 5.11+?
