BETA PHOTO: 'Iron Cross' is marked with a 'D'.

Description 

Layback a small and rounded left facing corner about ten feet left of the Sterling's start. Climb up and left (keeping upstream and out of Sterling's Double Crack) towards a hanging tooth overhang, and surmount this overhang (crux) just left of the tooth. (A more difficult - 5.10 - start can be had by bouldering through the overhanging face further right.)

Location 

About 10 feet downstream of the Sterling's Double Crack start.
