The Long's Cracks
This crack is more like a chimney after a bit of offwidth problem solving. Not often done, although clean.
Sequence of Luke sending Right Long's crack.

Anybody who rates Right Longs 5.11b definitely has not done it. This is harder than Mother Superior.

Rumors suggest 5.11d. Before the chockstone was carjacked away (yes, a floor jack) from the base of the crack this was a great 5.10c fist crack.

Once you figure out the beta this doable at 5.11/11+
If you are comfortable inverting I think may be easier that Mother Superior...

I'd have to agree with Luke about this being easier than Mother Superior. My knees seem to have a serious disagreement with MS though, so YMMV.

I don't ever remember this being 5.10c. We always thought it was 5.11, especially on the first ascent, circa 1975, on-sight with no pads and no rope. Don't pitch.

Super stylie FA, John! I thought about soloing, but thought better of it. If you see this comment, just out of curiosity, how high did the rock that used to be at the base get you? Would love to know how the FA was done as I get a kick out of learning about how the "dark arts" were developed over the years, especially from good storytellers.
Also, if these were my digs, I would have to start it back in the cave, just for dumb fun. Anyone done that before?
