Begin at a smooth slab and climb past two bolts into a right-slanting, thin crack system. When the crack dies out, easy face moves on large, positive holds gain the security of a chain anchor.
Enjoyable climbing with a nice blend of face and crack climbing on this one.
Just left of Bird of Prey below a right-leaning crack system.
2 bolts, gear to 1.5", chain anchors

The slab is pretty tough, and the first couple of moves in the crack are stout, and the rock is a bit gritty, maybe 5.9, but felt hard for me, however I'm not a great crack climber. And I might have stuffed the best holds full of gear. It's basically 1-2 hard moves to get established next to the crack, then its moderate face climbing from there.

Didn't have gear, so we set up TR. Great crack climb for this grade.
