Description 

Crux is a balancy hand move 15 feet off the ground. Good mix of moves and exposure many feet above the waves.

Route is short but worth lapping a few times to work on technique.

Location 

Left of plaque (on plaque wall). Stays on the right side of the arete.

Protection 

Toproped. No anchors, gear needed.

Nuts are best for building the anchor at the top, There aren't any super great cam placements except for one way way back.
