What a crux! Straight up through the two shallow cracks didn't feel like mid 5.11 at all, I went left but this didn't feel like the true line. Any beta?

Going left is offroute onto a no name .10+. The route ascends the twin cracks at the 1st bolt bulge then stays in the bolt line to the top. Agree it is a bit cruxy but it's all there....

I didn't really join the route next to it, I didn't move that far over. I traversed about 4 feet left at the first bolt, stood up and reached for the flat ledge directly between the first 2 bolts, and then worked my way over to the right hand lockoff for the 2nd clip.

Lee, how do you move up the 2 cracks? I couldn't slot them (too flared) or lieback them (too slopey). Is there something I'm missing? It just seemed really hard for the grade.
