don't read this if you don't want beta!.......

as you're turning the corner for the crux move, there's a nice handhold level with your calves? (it's underneath the buttress, i.e the wide crack), if you grab it with your left hand, it's bomber, allowing you keep balance as your turn the corner into the abyss. i climbed HE a few times, and the last time I did it, a guy from another climbing party pointed it out to me. It makes a big difference!
