Description 

Savagery leads to a hard topout.
Start with a right side pull at shoulder height, and a very close left hand gaston. Your left hand will be almost inside your cupped right hand, which is a pretty cool little hold set-up.
Paste your feet on the smears, and power hard up to the finger slot just below the roof. Once you are in there, it is not over, as you make a huge reach over the lip, hold the swing, and have to flop over. There's a "thank god" rail up there, which quickly becomes an "oh god!" rail, as you figure out how to get the rest of your body over the lip. I'll admit to a bit of groveling here, personally, but I may not have had the best method.

Location 

On the right end of the dugout, maybe 10-ish feet from the right. Look for the between elbow and head-height holds, as described above.

Protection 

2 pads. I didn't have a spotter, but it would be nice for the topout, since there are logs down there that you can brain yourself on if you fall without control.
