Locking hand jams with feet whenever you need them. Bring doubles from #1-#3.

Lead this with a standard rack though I did bring and use several hexes and a 3" cam. I also bumped up a 1.5" cam several times.

I found the crux about three pieces in as you gain the two-pad edge visible from the bottom.

Don't forget to protect the roof for your second!
