Description 

Starts on the downsloping hold in the smooth overhanging face. Establish and move left into a two/three finger pocket (a tiny sharp piece chews up the top of your finger) and then move up to the crimp or throw to the crimp directly with the right hand, move left hand to a really bad sloper that has thumb catch just good enough to keep you on, and then deadpoint to a crimp jug with the right hand. Finishing up and out left is the original exit though the line could be done straight up (slightly rightward) to increase the head game and length.
