Entering the crux protected by some micronuts.
Williams describes it as a "bit contrived", and it is.
Climb the face between Pas de Deux and City Lights to a ledge and small overhang formed by right- and left-facing flakes. The right-facing flakes are City Lights. Patty Duke involves a few moves above the left-facing flake, eliminating the right-facing flake, to gain the City Lights "jug". You can stay slightly left of City Lights as you work your way up, but eventually have to traverse over and up (5.5 R) to the bolt anchors.
On the face between Pas de Deux and City Lights
Williams suggests placing pro in the right-facing flakes of City Lights to protect the crux. Instead, I was able to get three micro-nuts in the left-facing flake (one was a directional) just beneath the crux. Judge for yourself.
