3 out of 5 stars Slabby Goodness

Clip the third bolt, then R.h sidepull with thumbcatch on top. L.h sidepull (lower of two right next to each other), L.f up almost into big pocket, R.f up to top nub of vertical crease in wall, L.h up to horrible nub, R.hand up to horrible nub nearest the L.h horrible nub..... (bigger looking R.h out right at small vertical crack is a red-herring), .....R.f up into big pocket, L.f up to edge lining the top of the previous L.f big pocket, L.h up to left side of thin tiny horizontal crease, L.f up to tiny barely visible, but most prominent nub, R.f up and smear with toe turned inward on optimal spot, R.h up to shitty two finger crimp, L.h up to better two finger crimp, walk feet to stable spot, move up to horizontal excellent clipping jug. Took me two burns, and about 6-7 falls at this lower crux on each burn, some bloody fingers, pouring sweat, and cursing the air blue to figure out this beta. On the third attempt I executed the above sequence exactly, and sent the route.
