The crux is completely over when you reach the flake left of the two tiny bushes. To get there involves a series of pretty hard moves starting from below Chuck. <br /> <br />Is it cheating to use the holds out right?  I don't think so, although I would consider it cheating to stem all the way over to Sports Pages, the wider crack on the right. Who's to say when natural crack climbs are this close to each other?
Just below the crux section. The Book of the Dead (9+) chimney is to the left. The huge Isis dihedal is just visible through the tree at the top left.

That's Topher. The giveaway is the dirtbag coolie hat. Topher has had many hats thru the years but they're alway the same...oversized, dirty and falling apart, much like most of our friends. How does he climb in those things? And sends too! I can't have anything on my head when I climb. Much less a radar dish. Half way up I send that thing sailing. Usually into a river. At which point if I'm being photographed the photographer is blinded by the yarmulke sized bald spot on my pate and quietly begins rappelling down. Another day shot. That's just not sexy.
