Climb the crack by whatever technique you choose. If you jam, the crux comes just before the top, if you layback, I have no idea when it comes. If you're feeling strong, bring 6 more draws, clip the anchors for pro, and punch it to the second set of anchors for a 5.12 called "Lex Luthor".
The distinctive right facing dihedral at Metropolis with a handcrack in it.
9(?) bolts. Or you could protect it with a double set of cams to #3 camalot. Yes its a bolted crack. Yes I'm ok with that.

Bolted cracks are fine on limestone sport meccas. It's all the rage with the kids these days.
Sent this lieback with plenty of face features. Partner put this one up trad style in the OW. We both felt it was a soft 9. Lotta fun either way!

Actually the extension is called Crux Luthor and the FA does go to AH, circa 1998.
