"Those crimpers are MONEY!"
~Matt Nance

[The following is as reported by Mr. Nance.]

A two-crux power animal. Works up hero tufa jugs right into a Euro smackdown crux just as the wall seems to un-steepen a bit. Jet past (you've got a long way to go, suckha), and move up the powerful tech-y face, comically sustained. But you won't be laughing long if you don't take advantage of the rest before you get to the vicious crimp crux and have to fire through the unexpectedly sharp and highly sequential crux that surprises you at the very end. (Only now it won't...beta spoiler!)

Send it, young warrior...


On the tufa-encrusted wall just right of the upper Iliada Right cave.


Many, many draws. And guts; the eye of the hamster won't do, here.
