Climb up the wide crack to a pod, I was able to get a no hands crouching rest here. Power up the rest of the wide crack to gain the nice butt crack like finger crack feature, where a combination of face holds and jams will see you to the top. I remember getting a horrendous pump on this one when I did it, however, 10+ was my limit at the time.


The wide crack just left of Hysteria.


I remember needing a couple of #3 camalots for this route, otherwise, a double set from fingers to hands will do nicely as the crack gets narrower as you go up.

Did this over memorial weekend 2014 in HOT weather. Beginning moves are easy and a #4 protects the wide section just fine. There is no need for more than a single rack with doubles of .5 maybe...
