The crux, it's butter from here... photo: Dave D'...


Sit-start in the steep patina on a good right-hand crimp and a left-hand incut sidepull. Throw big or use small intermediates up to a good bulbous hold with a positive edge (crux). Move out way left to some good left-facing edges and continue up on edges/flakes to the easier top-out.

Stand-start is v0.

Lots of variations/possibilities to start this thing. Andy's beta looks tricky and uses a very sharp crimp. I used the start left hand undercling straight to the right hand crimp then just bump again to the good right hold and its over.
