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. Bolted anchor.
