yes, you do not use the crack holds at all, including the holds on the left edge of the crack. go from the holds just left of the jug, and with a heel hook for the right, do a big move out left to a little crimp, then sort out the feet and cross over to the next hold. some of the hardest moves on the problem, but it seemed logical to not use the crack holds. Otherwise, I guess you could jam, stem and use whatever else in there to make it easy but for me that was not really the point.
I don't really like contrived problems in general but this one seemed pretty natural to off route the crack and the back wall. However, people will certainly do whatever and I don't really care, that is just the way I originally did the problem.
