There is a sidepull hidden under the left bottom part of the rock, combined with low right hand makes a great lay down start.

Every few years I attempt this intimidating unit, and every few years I make it a few more inches. This time I got as far as getting my butt stuck in the narrow section before claustrophobia got the better of me.
