I agree, this route is bitching. At least one 4 if not 2, tough OW up top. Anyone climbing the steeper crack to the right?

amazing climb. Desperate finish. If belaying from up top make sure you take that #4 out before the second climbs. The rope would just push it further back into the wide crack and its a pain in the ass to retrieve.
