Steep looking wide crack to the right of the trail just before you head down to Big Bird rock and before the Crack of Gloom squeeze. A short section of wide fists opens almost immediately to a chimney. Lots of relief holds appear along the way. Huge jugs appear to assist pulling around the outside lip. Way easier than it looks.

Walk off.

3 out of 5 stars ascent

Looked hard but turned out to be really simple. More of a face climb than an offwidth or chimney. Free Solo.
