Is it really that easy to lieback that section? Or am I just that weird?
To me it seemed easiest to jam it straight in with some stemming in the corner for most of the way, then stem and jam into the next crack on climber's right (behind) to finish. However, I didn't place pro in the next crack, so my follower blazed straight up the flake, liebacking.
Mark, I don't know how easy "that easy" is, but when I did it the lieback seemed like the jam (ha, see what i did there...kill me). At any rate, the angle definitely steepens tat this point but the edge of the crack becomes much sharper there (easier to grab) and the section is so short that the lieback felt like the way to go, like a little, simple boulder problem.
