This whole climb flares, so offset nuts are very helpful. This is just left of Black Pyre, two cracks to a bulge with 3 short vertical cracks, step right. Fun technical crux.

Better than the 10a to the right...Good option if you're trying for the 11a but it feels too hard.

The whole thing flares, which I found very unnerving. good climbing, but protecting is tricky, and I couldn't get a piece after pulling the crux, which I did not like at all... maybe better to TR.
