I messed around on this route earlier today next to an unlisted route that I like to call "Three Yodas" (see the Yoda head shaped pockets to the left?). It took a very specific sequence of moves that really forced you to emphasize footwork with little baby steps instead of big explosive moves. Start on a side-pull with your right hand and a flake with your left hand (highlighted in chalk). Place your right foot right exactly where the topo line begins and stand up. Quickly transition your left foot up onto a hold below the flake highlighted in chalk (where the rock looks more brown than gray) and reach your right hand up and around to a smear in the pocket across from the under-clung highlighted in chalk then grab said under-clung with your left hand and bring your right foot up into a pocket just right of the topo line and quickly move your left foot into a pocket that runs parallel to the one that you just put your right foot into. There is a pinch high right that will hold you for a long enough to find your next foothold in one of the many pockets that run up to the right of the topo. That's as far as I got before getting too pumped to finish. I will be back for sure.
