βeta: With your left hand on the obvious jug and your left foot on a smear bridge out right to the crack and then reach up with your right hand to the square block (very long difficult reach but no need to dyno). Once you step up reach up and right to the next ledge which allows you to make the mantel. The rest is easy.
