3 out of 5 stars get your man hands off me!

Nasty little climb. I figured out what works for me without using the non-man hands little crack. It's a small dyno to a 3 finger pocket near the chains and then hand holds on the top and left of the anchors (the top out holds). It's more of a shorter person crux, even if you don't have man hands. Problem is, I could never put this together into a successful redpoint.

2011DEC18: I went back to my Seismic Nemesis final and redpointed it. I changed up the beta at the Captain Morgan foothold to hold it left-handed with a right hand under-cling on the top of the hueco, then stepped up on the jug out left and moved my right foot to a nub under the right side of the hueco. This allowed me to cross over into a full body stretch and just barely reach the 3 finger pocket left of the chains with the left hand. Next move the right toe up and right and the left foot onto the Captain Morgan foot followed by left hand to the top of the crag above the chains. Now clip the easy sport clip facing outward and curse like a sailor while trying to clip the one facing into the wall. give up and put your own draw on the right anchor. Done.
