Crux moves are the very end, with a dangerous fall onto a ledge, with the only opportunity for protection an ~8mm splitter crack. My smallest cam (a purple 00 C3) was too large, and the crack is too uniform to take a stopper well. Probably best to avoid leading this variation unless you're solid on 5.10, or have very tiny active gear (Ball Nuts?). Jun 3, 2012
