Was the crux for me too. A FANTASTIC under talked about route!

Interesting. Our party of four (and we are all short) all thought the rock-over move on the overlap lower down is the crux. This move was all about finding one's balance on huge footholds with almost nothing for hands and standing up to get the good crimp (which looked like miles away from down low).

I'm pretty sure the upper crux has gotten easier with time. The incut for the left hand before stabbing upward certainly feels deeper than when I did it first. I think a lot of stuff got cleaned up up there. The crack to the right use to be pretty mangy :)
