Start low on a good incut, then move to a couple of crimpers. Do a big lockoff move to a gastoney jug. Finish 'er up

There are two variations to mention.

Starting at Sling Blade's sit start and traversing into Dem Bones has great moves. It is the best problem on the wall.

Also, climbing Dem Bones up to its jugs and the traversing over to the top of Sling Blade will add a few more stretchy moves to the climb.

did the second crimp before the crux break some more?
It seems much smaller/sharper recently....

still fun!
