Description 

The obvious overhanging hand crack just right of John's Jugs. Finishes off with an awkward wide crack move or two. Similar to Twilight Zone in that the jams are locker but it's steeper and the exit is harder than the Zone.




Protection 

Leave the cams on the ground and climb it with hexes. You can hang a truck on the placements you'll get in the spots where the pods open and close.
