I originally thought the sidepull crimps below this were the crux but actually I had a harder time moving off this right hand slopey pocket. Amazing lead Kris!

EDIT: Correction, I'm thinking of the slopey right hand pocket directly after the sidepull crimps.

Thank you, Joel! I remember I fuddled my feet at that spot a little and the thought 'God, I am about to fall' went through my head. But I ended up pulling through. The sling around the horn/big hold below is a life-saver.

Edit: Oh, wait -- the spot in the pic is higher than the crux. The gear is so-so and the moves are not as physically hard but still tricky.
