A fine left-to-right traverse of the main face. Start from the arete of Tufty and follow the low lip with difficulty. Finish up Captain Cook. The supporting block is out of bounds at all times.

Shame about the hands-off rest before the finish.

A reverse traverse is possible at the same grade by starting up Captain Cook, traversing leftwards, and finishing up Tufty, or along The Pocket Traverse.
With both traverses it is possible to keep your feet on the supporting block by using poor holds on the low lip.

Christopher Columbus is best and hardest with feet off the supporting block throughout.
