Description 

Approximately 40 feet right Animal cracker land between two gaping chimneys lies a pile of bushes out of which the hand and fist crack Jaybird starts. Right from the start the crack is overhanging. As the crack starts to become less steep it opens up becoming a comfortable squeeze before it terminates in easy climbing to the top of the formation. Kelman's book mentions a rappel station, I however, did not see it. Simil-rapping or other shenanigans are possible as the summit is relatively snag free.

Protection 

I used a #4 camalot, but only because I grabbed it instead of a #3. I suspect the would be equally casual without the #4.
