Crouch start with a left hand fist jam in the crack and a right hand lower in the thin crack. From there, move out to the hueco, make a big move to the lip, and head straight up and over for the topout.
Toe-hooking the obvious undercling really helps out with this one.
This is on the East face of Division Rock.
A few pads, the landing is quite good.

A purer start to this one would likely involve a sit start with both hands down low on the crack's thinner section or on the undercling. The added moves would probably increase the difficulty. But most of the crack is filled with ice at the moment, and I'm not sure I have the skill, even if it wasn't there. Regardless of where you start, it climbs pretty cool, and it's rare for the area!
