Jumanji! I successfully hung on every piece of gear I placed on this one. .5-.75 camalots sans piez are just horrible sizes. The hands section finally comes after pulling onto the slab above.

Wow! This thing is short, but man does it pack a punch! The crack cuts a slightly overhanging face for about 15 feet and as it does, it widens from fingers to thin hands. The feet are terrible, the crack is slightly offset, and there's sure to be somewhere that your hands don't fit.

Reminds me a lot of Coyne Crack, only harder... (the one in LCC, not the creek)
