Another angle.

Description 

Kind of not worth doing unless you've climbed every other variation.
Highball with a bad landing. -Hope your crimp strength is up to date.-

Stand start on top of the slab and reach to an incut crimp.
From here climb directly up using bad crimps and some high confidence.
Make some strenuous pulls until you can reach good patina finger jugs. Top out over a no fall zone and let out a sigh of relief.

Location 

Same as for Checkerboard but climb direct.

Protection 

Six pads and two spotters.
A stretcher or paramedics.
