#1 TCU or equivalent protect the bouldery crux moves off the deck. Be wary of pulling too hard (or standing) on any of the potato-chip flakes on the face alongside the crack.

As the crack at the bottom (crux) of the route is too small to fit even my pinky into, good luck protecting this route. After looking at the pro "options" I top roped it after leading the Lizard of Ahhz to the left. The bottom portion, up to the plant -with stickers- growing about 20 feet up, gives the route the .10d rating; the upper portion is fairly easy and would protect well.

bottom right-slanting crux protectable with thinner-than-tips gear. could actually sew it up, but prob wouldn't want to tinker for too long
