Crux Move. (Keeping your feet on, of course. It he...

Description 

This problem reminds me of the boulders back home where crux is getting off the ground.

Squat Start with hands matched on good edge on the arete (same as right hand on problem, "With Barn's Wide Open") with feet pasted to a slick face on the right side of the arete. Do a commiting power move to a decent pinch/sloper. Crux over. Work your way up the arete.

Location 

On the arete to the right of "With Barn's Wide Open"

Protection 

Properly placed pad and good spotter. If you blow the first move, you are put on your arse. I still have a bruise.
