The first half of the climb is straight forward, moderate slab. The crux is standing up and moving around the rounded little "roof" section to hit the 3rd clip. To top out you have to grit your teeth and rock a solid lie back all the way to the top; each hand placement feels better and better as you go but the first couple moves are committing!
