[Hide Comment] Alternate Sequence: Starting matched on the jug/edge, move out right to a small crimp (below and ~1' right of the obvious crimp described in the problem description) bump straight up (~2') to another small right-hand crimp that comes to a little knob under your thumb/index fingers. At this point bring the left hand up from the start jug to the obvious crimp above the jug, tension the shoulders, and bring the left foot up from whatever you used as a starting foot to the starting jug. From here you can rock up on the toe and go straight up with the left hand into the second of the two obvious 'deep pockets' and easily move right to top out. Nov 29, 2020
