[Hide Comment] Crux is the bottom... after that, good ol' fashion off-width jam. Finish inside the chimney... A very fun progression. Aug 30, 2013

[Hide Comment] Crux is right off the ground, flaring discontinuous finger cracks with thin tricky pro. Crack above is top quality, not too difficult but will test your every size. A #3 cam can be placed immediately below the offwidth/squeeze, eliminating the need to bring anything larger. Sep 28, 2016
