Southern Cross is a spectacular line on great rock. It's difficulties are compounded with spicy runouts on your smallest gear. The insipient crack no longer contains bushes but also no longer has a fixed pin.

While you may get in pro up to a #3.5 camalot be sure to bring triples of the smaller than finger size cams. Offset nuts and micro stoppers will come in handy too.
