Angled crack. Guidebook says "Layback, jamming left leg in the crack." I just climbed it as a crack without the layback. Variation of 5.7 by climbing crack as pure layback. "Very strenuous."

5 out of 5 stars Pure layback version

Very slippery rock, especially at the start, using tiny footholds for the layback works much better than pure smear.
