Start on The Mexican (see Holladay Wall) bolts 1-2, then follow permadraws up and right onto the ledge. Leaving the ledge is awkward without the following beta: keep feet on the ledge and lean out to clip, come back. Use a left foot shelf and climb up, face near Penelope Says So's anchors, then hands traverse the obvious shelf, feet just over the roof, clipping low. The rest of the route is more natural and worth this flaw (IMO).

Memorable and interesting traversing up high. This route is hard to grade. The crux moves are surrounded by non-easy moves that might suggest 5.11a. But there's a whole lot less pump than Rock-About. The weird low ledge bolt is intended to prevent ropes from crossing/sawing should someone lead Penelope Says So at the same time as you lead this traverse. The weird low clips after the ledge are because Penelope's bolt was already there. I guess they help reduce rope-drag too.
