The crux bump.

Description 

Same start as the Zipper, but from the finger jug you stay direct on the wall.
Classic moves with a scary and hard finish! Harder than the original.



Location 

The Zipper Direct.

Protection 

I rope-soloed it, and for now I'm pleased with that. Maybe someday I will want to throw the pads down and solo it. I know Ian is psyched.

This thing is awesome. Surely a classic of the lake regardless of how you climb it. Props to you Remo! Would be an excellent tr, and would be possible to head point or solo... Would surely be scary...
