Climb up the first pitch of Eeyors enigma then traverse out right under the large roof for two pitchs. The first pitch starts out hard with a big reach, then continues up sustained fingers and hands with a few releaf foot holds. Finally the pitch looses the feet wich become under cut and you have to traverse past a wide pod (crux). Most people burrow into the pod for a quick rest before making a few more sustained moves to the anchor (fixed pin and nut). The second pitch is a bit easier with good hands and the occasional good foot. End on the anchors of Travelers Buttress. Stiff for .10d.... very sustained.
You can continue up Travelers, bring a second rope and rap from the Travelers anchors or make a short rap down to the anchors of Purple Haze and rap to the ground from there. The Purple Haze anchors are comprised of a fixed pin, fixed nut and jammed knot.

Salamanizer is right about it being harder than Gram traverse. more sustained. I wedged as much of myself as i could in the pod and really had to milk some rest out of it by isolating different parts of the body. amazing good time and glad i didn't peel multiple spots. Much more sustained than the 11.c mainline which i redpointed right before this so it seemed harder.
Harder than the Gram traverse but cleaner and more fun. This is a classic leap route. Hard and sustained but lots of options for pro and safe. Got my ass kicked and I just onsighted Freak Show at .11c/d to give you some perspective. None of the moves are that hard, it's just really sustained.
