I agree, highball! Keep calm and search for those crimps they are all there, maintain good feet and reach for the last hold up top on right.

Watch for shattered glass on the holds. I was climbing this a few days ago and got past halfway only to be greeted with glass filled holds!! brushed out what I could reach, not sure if I got them all.
