From the bottom of Birds Nest climb the crack on the left hand wall up to a one finger pocket. Pull the pocket onto some jugs above. use a virtical crimper on the right (Or dyno!) to a big pocket jug above. Lay back to the left and pull the crack as it slants up and left to the edge. Near the top this climb gets much easier if you can get your left leg under you on some jibs, then onto the arete!!

Fun stuff. You do not need to dyno to the jug. It is set up for a perfect mantle. Also, if you have the beta, you can move out slightly right to a good pinch, and then actually undercling the flaring crack. This makes it 10c. If you just try to climb the flaring crack alone (which I did), it feels more like an 11.
