  • Description 

    From underclings got right to a nice long pocket that you can pinch at the bottom, then match with the left pinchig the top in a sort of back handed grip (with your palm facing you). Get a right drop knee and hit the crimpy pinch at the lip. Get a bicycle with your feet and bump your left hand out into another pocket. Then learn to foot jam and stuff your right foot in the pocket that you just matched. Reach up left to the 2 finger on the face and get a left heal scum. Right hand up to a small but good edge. Now for the crux, do something with your feet to help you throw your body up and left to a very good edge. From this edge climb up a move or two and back down to drop off.

    If you want to try and top out...well I'm not sure it is a good idea.
