Description 

Upsuck climbs a short, lowball overhang on great rock over a very good landing. The movement is delightfully brutish on this one.

Sit start with a right hand pinch and a left hand undercling/sidepull. From there, bump the left hand further up the feature to a decent thumb-catch, walk the feet through the foot-slip potential smears to a big power foot, then make a big right hand move to a pinch/edge (using an intermediate sidepull may be an option as well), reach a left hand three-finger pocket, gain the lip, and top it out using the good features (not a bad idea to check for glass before throwing your hands around up there).

Location 

It climbs the center, north face of Captain Crunch (the northwest arete is off - though it climbs purely without it).

Protection 

A pad will suffice, the landing is very good.
