Looks like 15' of climbing, feels like 100'. The start is almost immediately above the top-out of Gem Nabors, just slightly to the right around the corner, but you can easily walk up to the start from the right on blocks and slabs (sandals and beer cooler terrain). The wide isn't the technical crux on this one, but the wide is why you get on this thing to start with. Taping or using a pad on your left tricep is highly recommended, it's a little grainy in there.
It's no joke about protecting for the second right after you pull the crux move. Anchor will likely be way around horizontally to the right. Just reach back left and add a 1" piece when you're standing on the ending ledge or the second will be looking at pulling the crux moves with a borderline decking/ definitely ugly swinging clanger into the lower wall.

Ipecac, or syrup of ipecac actually, is derived from the dried Ipecacuanha plant (Cephaelis ipecacuanha) and used to induce vomiting in cases of accidental poisoning.
Those with an aversion to wide cracks might find the mere sight of this crack to have that effect.
