Description 

Start on the awesome incut jug holds. Move up making a big move to he next set of horizontal seams which are also jigs due to the "lip" on both seams. From
Here match hands and then adjust. Throw your left hand up to the obvious white crystal sloper blob not as good as it looks and can be tricky. If you manage to hit it good move your right foot into the seam and lock the heel/toe. Now comes the exciting crux. Slowly lift up and hit a nice small crimp right at the lip or to the right of the white crystal sloper. Committing very thin and bulging. Testy for the grade! A classic for the area once it gets A few more ascents.
