This is the first crack system to the right of Bird Of Fire. It curves left and then straightens. Most of the climbing is fist jamming, deep in the crack.
standard rack, including some pieces to at least three inches

A worthwhile route while in the area. It's nice to have a wide piece for the fatter crack section near the top. I plugged a #5 Camalot C4 in the big section. Have at least one #3 and/or #4 for the anchor as the options are limited with most of them wide and flaring.

everybody should do this route. I found it to be a lot of fun (and a little scarey). I think I'm starting to enjoy the arm bar.
