Moving into the crux of the route.

So roughly what happens is that my right and left hand are both where Jason's are in this photo, I high step right and move the left up and right a little too. I have to bend my right arm really awkwardly to get it past my knee to start the long reach. Looks super goofy. I probably need to change my sequence...

Edit: Elbow-under-the-knee problem solved (just needed to move the hand in question to a different hold, duh). May 7, 2009
Elbow under knee?? I can't picture it! :) I didn't have that problem at all. Maybe the route is hardest for normal-heighted folks who can neither get the high step easily nor reach the holds. (I'm 5'2".) May 7, 2009

For me the worst part is getting my elbow caught under my knee with the high-step. Do you guys have this problem ever? I'm of average (male) height - like 5'10". May 6, 2009
