Description:

First ascent back in the 90s by Marcus Garcia. Located just to the left (south) of Karl Bird Crack. Start on the same holds that you use for the start of Karl Bird Crack but go up and left to a thin lieback/undercling flake. Get pro in the flake (I use an orange powercam) and then go straight up to a horizontal crack. Hanging onto this and getting the pro in (blue TCU) is the crux to me. After this, slide a little left and then push through one more move straight up using slightly rotten to gain another horizontal crack and good pro (0.75 camalot).
