Description 

Start as for Who Needs Feet, but instead of following the slopers up to the top out midway across the face, stay low and continue traversing right with a crux cross-through using the crystally, sloping, painful fingerlock. Top out on good holds at the corner of the boulder.

Location 

On the same boulder as Who Needs Feet.

Protection 

Pads, tape, and a spot.

Painful is an understatement. I keep ripping my knuckles and fingertips open and yet I keep coming back.
