Fun down low, but kind of a gnarly section of that #~4.5 crack that can be tough - too small to really get a solid heel-toe and armbars working well, but too big for straight-in toe jams or hand stacks.

Be prepared for a battle if you don't climb that size crack very often. It certainly protects well though, so with proper cams you'll be safe.
