Rockfax Description
The lower crack is almost always damp and usually smelly. Ignore this fact and jam up it to a (possible) stance on the giant flake. The continuation is awkward, especially the fist-grinding belly-flop into the wider finishing section. . © Rockfax

βeta: No fist jams necessary or for that matter obvious. Tricky combination of hand jams to top out though.
