Jamie Macneil on the FA of Critical Crimps
Climb the slab to the short, steep headwall. Pull this toward the right side (bolt-protected crux), then ascend low-angle rock to the steeper face above. Up this via delicate knobs to the large horizontal under the overhang.
Pull overhang and step right into the "Attic" where you can use the anchors to belay, or continue upward through the notch left of the roof to the top (original ascent, but the anchors are more convenient).
Low point of the cliff. This can be accessed via a scramble downward from near Eatin' Tripe and Lichen It, or by rappeling off the "Patio".
Mixture of cams and quickdraws.

Stellar line, 5 stars for sure. You can lower with a 70m rope from the "Attic".

You can lower with a 60m. Make sure the second is tied in. Some simul scrambling is necessary.

Excellent climb. Tricky technical move down low, followed by beautiful face climbing and a small roof up high.
