This route is located around the next buttress from Birthday Party. Look for an obvious crack splitting an overhanging face. Start on the boulder in front of the route then step into the crack. Smudge over the low roof then pinch, lock, and crimp to reach a dirty rest. Try to get some gear in then climb easy but dirty rock to slings around a tree.
Moves: Off-fingers
Descent: Rap from tree
Stays Dry: Light rain
Owner: NFS

Funky off-fingers/tight hands. Fun move getting past the pod up high. Feels longer than it looks.

Fun little route! Top 20 feet is not as horrifying as it seems from the ground.

Really fun, even when the rock turns to junk up high. Burly little thing.

Great route, fun crux, good gear. Why people would ignore this thing at a crag like Left Flank is beyond me.
