Cruising JBs Seam while the pups enjoy a bone.

Description 

The seam starts with two small sidepulls, which are used to gain a small sharp finger pocket. Sort your feet and make tracks for a good pocket higher on the seam.

What remains isn't as hard as what went before, but you'll need a cool head to complete the tick.

Location 

Thin seem in middle of the face.

This problem can feel desperate if you don't have the sequence right. Wire the sequence and the crux flows nicely up to the bomber pocket, where you can compose yourself for the final couple of pulls to the top.
