The crux is protected by some awkward gear in not-so-great rock. The bolt just above the overhang can be clipped from above the crux, but frankly, I skipped it until after due to an awkward stance.
Not a great route. As if to punctuate the questionable nature of some of the rock on this climb, a hold broke off just above the crux while I was downclimbing it from the top. This might have been one of the options for a clipping hold.
