A "harder than it looks" left leaning crack that encounters a crux down low at the small overhang. Eases up from here to the top.


One route to the right of Subconscious Bird Watcher. Starts at the base of the large crack on the South Face.
Head off the North side where there is a 5.3 downclimb, or you could lower off the anchors of Turkey Heads.


Besides a standard selection of pro, it is helpful, but not necessary to have a larger camming unit for protecting the crux.
Belay the second via a traditional anchor from inside a pod at the top of the boulder.
