Description 

There are two parallel cracks about 70' left of Hawk's Nest (5.7), an obvious splitter in the middle of the crag. This route takes the leftmost line. The right line is Thirteen Cheeps (10c).

Inital movement and gear placement is awkward because the crack is overhanging and in the back of a shallow pod. Once over the bulge, the climbing eases to the top. Fun but short climb (2 out of 5 stars).


Protection 

Small to meduium TCU's and Cams work well to protect this crack which begins with tips / thin fingers and widens to hands / fists near the top.

Sling a large horn and back it up with medium cams for an anchor. Walkoff to the east.
