SDS at a low shelf and work up and slightly right on horizontals to the crux move, a long reach to a two-handed slot, before making another reach and and mantling over the sloping top. FYI - unlike the guidebook description the crux is down low unless you're mantelly-challenged.
Short but really fun climbing on mostly jugs with a definite crux.

Slopers + Mantles = torture!!

The mantle is the crux of the problem. The move to the break is long, but you can also move right then back left and up to the large slot - all the same problem.
Fun problem and a great one to pics from above as people squirm over the mantle.

Mantelly-challenged....now that is a good one. Very well stated, Chris. We do need some consistency between Administrators regarding the spelling of mantel (vs. mantle).
