A harder crimp start into "Thews" proper:

Start with a left hand on the crimp out to the left of the sidepull/pinch that is the start to "thews proper" and a right hand pulling the low crimp undercling rail.

Paste a foot underneath and pull on. Reach up and gain the pinch to begin and finish standard "Thews".

Usually you get to situate your hand "Just right" on the pinch, but starting low on the tiny undercling forces you to make do with what you grab... But defiantly send Thews Proper first!

May add difficulty or be more sustained, but this is pretty unnatural start to the most bautiful and natural line in the area!

Okay granted this should get 2 stars tops but wow Jay haha! a BOMB! really!?
I dont care if someone proposed a run and jump start to Thews it still would never get a bomb! This is a hard start that someone should definitely do after they send Thews proper.
I think its a really cool way to start it... I would highly recommend you actually sending thews, and then doing this start afterward. You might change your mind.

haha a BOMB!? I think the most "natural" way to the top of this boulder is walking up the back, so, 3 stars? Just have fun and climb Jay...
