Move down and right to the horizontal crack above Nit Nat and Changes in Latitude. Climb this to a two bolt hanging belay behind the Hippity Hop flake. Either rap off here or continue to the top via run out flaky moves.

3 out of 5 stars Traversed both ways

Traversed out right to anchors, then did climb in reverse. It's a bit harder on the way back, but still in the 5.5-5.6 range.

4 out of 5 stars Fun stuff

This climb is Changes in Longitude, not changes in latitude.

Really fun traverse, with a spicy exposed move under the roof to start things off. Easy cruising for the rest of it. The belay bolts are old, but solid and you can back them up with medium size pieces.

There is no fixed pin anymore. I would say reversing the first pitch back to the start would be more fun than doing the stated second pitch, or rapping off.
