If you want better beta... go up the pocket just 6 inches right of the 2nd draw, then switch to your left foot down low below the smear. Left hand to the crimp. Smear your right foot up upon the arete, then move your right hand to the arete pinch. Dead point to the fin, and clip off of the dish in back.

6 in left of the 2nd bolt? You stuck a deadpoint to the horn?

The barndoor swingin', arete pinchin', foot flaggin', pocket stabbin' crux sequence.

The harder you stare at that damn pocket the more you pull yourself away from it. Ugh!
