getting through the crux

Description 

Look for a large flake up high to locate the climb. Start up the slab corner for 25' placing gear. At the overhang fire straight up on great holds with excellent movement past 3 bolts. Take care when using the massive flake. 2 bolt anchor awaits at the top.

the crux is after the first bolt. This climb has some wild movement in it. In my book a classic.
