Stickin the crux on Baseball


Doing the crux move(s) is often correlated to how well you can see the holds from the underside of the roof, but in general the business is turning the roof and grabbing the "baseball" hold to then make the last hard move to get to the jug finish.


Same start as the V8, but veering right through the roof via the vertical wall hold and small crimps. A hard move (often campused) will get you to the finish.

Some beta on this problem. The last move, right where I fall, is the crux. This problem has some very angular holds that eventually cut into your hands in all the wrong spots if you keep trying it multiple times (like I did). Otherwise it is a good problem with decent movement.
