short lived crux but super cool move. Felt amazing reaching through to the second cresent. i think my average height added interest.

First VS 5a. Awkward moves at the bottom are harder than the crux.

Hard variations possible and even harder if unable to jam. Top crescent cracks are very pleasant.
