Up high when you leave the dihedral and move left into the left leaning crack the pro is tricky. I think medium/large offset cams, rps, and sliders would work well here. I thought a purple c3 was better at the very top than grey. I guess after you place this piece you're supposed to step out right around the arete to the anchor but it seems odd since when you can place the last piece you can also reach left and clip the Fierce Invalids Extension anchor (and then TR FIE and Accidental Tourist all from this anchor)!
