Start up the thin crack until forced out right onto the face at the bottom of the very impressive wide hand width crack.

Follow the crack directly to the top, which offers only tricky to place protection.

Crack is much wider than hands. Scared me so much doing it in big mountain boots 35 years ago with no runners that would fit a cracj this size that I've never repeated it.
