The top crux is indeed quite hard, and a proud onsight. First, I tried going up left from the hueco jug to the tiny crimp, and then up to the gaston sidepull to the right, but this spit me off. On my second try, I had the hueco in my left hand and a good pocket slightly up to the right, got my left foot high on a good edge, reached up w/ left hand to the sidepull (reachy), then got my left foot up into the hueco jug. There's a small crimp out to the right to get your feet higher, then clip the anchors.
A couple hard 11 cruxes, and generally very technical and fun and with good falls. Get on it!

|Easy and fun climb up to the crux. I started with right hand in the jug. Crossed my left hand in the pocket. Brought my feet up and went for a gaston crimp with right hand. Left foot in the hueco. Left hand in the side pull.Cross right hand in final jug. Match the jug with left hand then clip. Easy after figuring the beta. Hard to onsight.|
