Jam the big crack. Runners tend to get in the way. The last few feet of this crack are steeper than they look. Walk up the ledges to pitch 2 in a shallow corner. Bridge, jam or layback this to a poor landing. Belay on the fence needs a lot of rope. Easy for its grade if you like jamming, desparate if you don't.
