    Shown in the Oklahoma Select as a variation for ending The Claw. Step right to a finger crack and face holds (10-)in lieu of going over the boulder to finish the pitch. Bring finger size cams.

    For big gear, I used two 4s and one 5 Camalot. I placed the first 4 in the middle of the face climbing crux section. It was a bomber placement. I placed the next 4 and 5 in the OW.
