Description:

This is a variation of the Insane Whisperings traverse. Traverse its first 5 fixed biners, then go up and left to get hands on the shelf, >then< clip a draw on the hanger left of the 5th fixed biner (don't skip or else it's a bad leadfall onto a bulge below the traverse), then go up and clip a draw on the left bulge, finishing Hideous MI-GO Swimming Through Space.

5 out of 5 stars easiest traverse variation, and one of the best.

And still very long! Spookey move onto the ledge. Definitely get hands on the ledge before clipping your draw on the bolt left and below the ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Pumpy traverse

The traverse is really fun, try to save some energy for the up-route move (I'll remember that next time ;)
