|Great route. Shady until late afternoon, and somewhat protected by rain from a roof above. I don't really dyno at the crux; I do more of a lieback off the terrible right sloper. It's important to lean left for the sloper to be effective. I then let go of the left undercling and statically--but quickly--get the jug rail above. The route is not long but I find it pumpy. This and Wanker P1 are my favorite pitches at Vampire. I'm not sure whence the name derives.|

Stop reading if you don't want beta:
The bad sloper at the first overlap can be avoided all together. Before pulling the overlap work the feet as far right as possible. Hands on the good undercling.
Move the left hand up to the high side pull (just right of the bolt) while leaning way right.
Work the feet up.
Right hand to slightly slopey crimp (just above and right of the sidepull the left hand is on).
From here, it's one move up to better holds.
