First time I had seen this climb I loved the look of that thin crack. It is short, but it does not have face moves, it is in the crack all the way. Make sure you protect this one well if you are not comfortable with climbs at or above this grade, it is a very bad landing if you blow it.
I highly recommend this climb, short but fun!

I felt the crux was pretty sporty. The crack angles hortizontally left resulting in a short blank section before the next crack. A good left hand at the horizontal, a tiny crimp for the right and a high right foot got me to the positive holds above.
