Although this is really just a variation to MCPSAES, it is SO different in nature and difficulty from that route, I thought it could use its own separate description. Left of the standard finishes to the Syringe is an obvious, wide crack through a roof. This is The Pit...and the Pit is hard. It is not your run-of-the-mill 5.9.
This is 20 or 30 feet left of the Syringes' standard finishes. The wide roof crack.
I didn't use anything bigger than a #3 Camalot, but something bigger would fit. It pretty much tops out on the summit.

5.9 my ass! Suuuuper awkward, overhanging, big hand/fist crack with jack all for feet. The pro is good, so at least you can aid through this sucker if '5.9' is at or near your limit. We found the #4 very useful.
