I Love Brian Piccolo

Located on an upper tier buttress to the right of boulder piles. A flaky looking crack that leads to a notch. It can be combined with "Other Voices".
Boulder-hop across from the top of "Other Voices" to find another steep one. Start up a thin crack (cams) to the right of a large thick undercling flake, this leads to a traverse left to the bottom of the main crack. The crack leans leftwards, a big sharp handrail (medium cam in crack) allows you to gain the crack, and good holds and exposed climbing leads to a rest on a large flake on the right. Step left from here and into the crux (small/medium cam) strenuous moves lead to a tricky finish.
Scramble off to the right.
Small to medium cams, medium cam anchor.

In retrospect I realise that I had more trouble using the "hand-rail" to get into the crack than I did at the crux, although Tony and Mike both breezed through that "hand-rail" section.

Awkward climbing on questionable rock. Woot!?
