Crimps on slab, over-hang, and face. Great technical movement.

Low, middle, high crux. Crimpy, powerful, with spaced out rests. Flake at crux has a hollow sound when knocked on that I don't remember from before, but the last time I was on it was over a year ago, so I'm not sure if this is a recent development. Worth keeping an eye on though.
