Supertopo says, "it's best to just scramble over right to the bolted anchor of Polski Wyrob". Like an idiot, after a quick glance at the topo, I thought this meant to take the right side of crack where it splits in a Y, then a short bit of face would take me to the chains.

Big mistake. After the Y,the crack becomes flared, and it is not really possible to get pro. I was well above my last good gear, a #1 Camalot, and was really surprised that the route would go this way. I think I was able to get 2 good lobes in on either a Yellow or Green Alien, but I didn't have that much confidence in the piece if I had fallen. I'll just say that finishing up was a combination of steepish laybacking and then face climbing, felt pretty heady, and that going LEFT at the Y would have been pretty cruiser. Woops.
