Description 

Start as if you were starting Hogs (on the far left side of the good rail). But instead of traversing right out the rail, go straight up on some tiny little crimpers. The last move is exciting (try not to think about the landing!). Crimpy, crimpy, crimpy.

Protection 

Pad and a good spotter to keep you off the pointed rock below.

Does this use the bad slopers up and right with the right hand, then go to the crimps with the left?

No,there are no slopers on this problem. It's all about crimping. If I remember right, you start with your right hand on the far left side of the Hogs rail, left hand on something bad, reach up left hand to a small crimp and then just keep going up on tiny crimpers. The holds should be obvious. At one point you have to hike your feet up to the rail and throw for the top off of tiny little holds.
