Getting off the ground is the first crux, and it is reachy and powerful. The entry sequence seems much harder than 5.11 until you get the sequence right. Run up the black streak and faint right, before jugging left (The Ruse). Getting to the anchor is cruxy, spooky, and committing. But you won't die if you miss the lip move.
