Above the squeeze crux on the F.A. of 'Decreation'

The fixed pin was installed after two lead attempts with out it....

The gear is pretty much non-existent due to the flairing nature of the crack. A ground fall would pretty much be guaranteed if one botched the transition from the squeeze with out the pin.
