At the crux

Description 

It starts off with a fun and balancly mantle off a nice jug. Just after mantling gain a awesome hand crack. Follow the slabby hand crack to the top. Look right and enjoy the amazing view. This climb is a classic!

Protection 

From BD .4 to 1.0. It's also useful to have large cam (ie BD 3.0) for a horizontal near the top. You can pretty much plug gear anywhere. It's also useful to sling the jug before mantling off of it at the beginning of the climb.

The start is cruxy with a committing mantle. I got a nice orange metolius TCU in behind the flake. The rest of the climb protects very nicely with nuts and medium sized pieces. I placed several #.75s, #1s, a #2 and a #3. The crack petering out in the middle makes for a fantastic move.
