That back-step is KEY to success here, and plug those TCU's for pro. There was a fixed nut poking straight out of the back-step when I did this =, but I hear it has been pulled. The cranks here are some of the weirdest ones you've probably never encountered...but the opposition/Gaston thrutching gets you up to where the flake off to the left comes into play..but is not visible from below. So when you get just a few feet up into the funkness keep an eye pealed for the holds out left. I used a heel hook out there, too. 5.11 climbing for sure.
