BETA PHOTO: Start and problem beta for Amp Up And Amplify.

Description 

Amp Up And Amplify is a powerful lowball that ascends a solid overhang over a great landing.

Sit start with hands matched on a perfect, oblique rail. From there, work the hands up the rail, tic tac the feet into place, then move a big right hand to a sharp crimp, follow with another big move with the left hand to the lip (crux), reel the feet in, match a right hand on the lip, throw a heel over, and top it out.

There is a lower start that begins with two pockets. I didn't feel like the additional moves added much value to the problem, as they were awkward, and didn't really add difficulty to the problem. Nonetheless, it is an option.

Location 

It ascends the center of the northwest face.

Protection 

A few pads should do it, the immediate landing is great, but there a few rocks surrounding the fall zone.
