This move is actually quite a bit easier done differently. If you start with your right hand where Kris's left is in the picture, you can use your left on a bomber undercling right next to that spot, then go right hand to the lip without such a stretch.

You sure about that? So, a match? The hold seemed a bit small for that. I got my left there then pressed down on the ledge with my right palm to get my foot up.

I'll verify that Tom's beta is ironclad. Not really a match - right hand gaston, left hand into the blocky undercling, stand up. Not even one of the hard moves on the route that way.

I think that's the way Kris is doing it. Left hand is on that flake type hold then the right crosses through to a good incut in the crack, then the left goes to the nice incut a few inches higher, right hand to the top.
Check the tic mark where his right hand once was.

Now that looks like a burly move.
