Stacking hands sound like fun? How about knee jams and arm bars? Then this is the route for you.
Vertical crack to right of Reachers of Habit (5.11b)
Loads of big gear, bring a big bro, or four.
If you approach this thinking there will be placements for your standard crack, you will be in X rated territory.

I climbed it w/a handfull of #4 camalots. They were almost all tipped out and fairly useless except as psychological pro. Pretty interesting and fun for being so short.

Leading this is a lot of fun. Gear beta to follow. Don't read if you want a legit onsight!
You definitely need big gear. I used 2 (4.5)s, 1 (6) and 1 (4). Did a fair bit of leap frogging and bumping with the first 3 cams. A couple middle sized cams for the top. Great fun. Good intro to offwidth. Good place to practice the cam mgmt skills, too.
