Description 

Call of the Crane climbs the prow to the right of Cindy's Chimney and to the left of the offwidth crack Chuckwalla.
Start with moves along an intermittent crack/seam with decent ledges to a horizontal crack below a vertical/slightly overhanging face with no pro. Place a cam or two here before committing to the headwall of the prow-- crux face climbing for 8-10 feet or so-- then you'll reach more low-angle terrain and a finger/thin hands crack providing welcome pro again.


Location 

This climb is about 6' to the right of Cindy's Chimney.


Protection 

A few cams to 2", and some nuts.
Anchor off static rope off the tree near the corner of Potrillo, or build your own with gear (recommended).
