The crux is right at the base pulling over the overhang and feels stiff for the grade. Hint: put your right foot on the right seam. Stab for the nice finger jamb above then jamb the continuous fingercrack up to the anchor.


The obvious fingercrack on the left side of the formation.


Cams to 2.5" with extra in the finger to micro size
50 meter rope
