This is a burly line, punctuated by several tiny biter crimps. On the middle/right of the wall, find a couple of big slopers at the base of a seam. There is a large, right facing side pull directly above these slopers. Then there are the crimps. The left one is almost two finges, and maybe 5/16 on a good day. The right one is just as skinny, but awards you two or three fingers... Choose wisely. After that, there is a perfect, positive half pad crimp right on the seam itself. You will know what I am talking about when you see it. Hit that, and swing up the jugs to the top.

Though most of the lines up here are Robert's or Flagstaff Oldschool, I had to rap this line, and delicately manicure the spines off of all three important crimps. There would have been know way of doing the line previously. Kudos to Joel for knocking it off in a couple heart beats.
