One of the best of the grade the Holies has to offer. Starting on a low jug, move up to a slopey sidepull, do some magic with your feet and reach your left hand up to a bad crimp. Get your feet up, and do a tricky move to a blocky jug in the middle of the face.

2-3 pads and a spotter

I am a relatively (ok, very) short climber (5.3') and having a hard time figuring out what feet to use to get to the middle crimp on this one. Any short-person beta appreciated. Thanks!
