The crux is at the start. Move up (usually left and up since the orange slab at the bottom is slick) to the "woogedy" (short jagged crack). Then move up the face to the top of the buttress and continue on easier climbing to the top.

The woogedy should take some good pro, as long as you leave room for your hands and feet.

This is usually done on top-rope after leading the 5.3 corner.


This is the lightning-bolt shaped crack on the buttress between the 5.3 corner and Dark in Bad.


Standard trad rack, with perhaps a #9 hex for the chunky bulges halfway up.
