Description

Start on the flat, angling jug at the base as for Right and Left El Jorge. Fire up with your right hand to the prominent crimp on Right El Jorge (and Left) and reach left to a two handed, sloping jug. Match, figure out how to release your right foot, and throw out left to the lip possibly using some intermediates to help.

This problem gets plenty of negative comments on .8a, but I thought it was awesome movement and daresay a better problem than Right El Jorge, if slightly easier. While it looks easy enough at first, the problem requires considerable body tension and good footwork (for an overhang).
