This is a fantastic climb following a corner system on the right/east end of South Rock. The pro can be tricky near the crux but it's placed from a semi-decent stance after that it eases off a little. Really fun and powerful moves.
This is a left facing crack system right of a right facing hand crack. The line goes straight up through a bulge to anchors. It's the first crack you come to after the traverse on the east end of the crag when heading west.
Bolted anchor. Need small cams/nuts/ballnuts for the crux bulge. Yellow and orange TCU's are key pieces.

This line is identifiable by two bulges each with big streaks of bird poop on them. The poop isn't an issue while climbing, though. It looks improbably steep for 10-. Quite fun.

My rack recommendation: single set of cams from a 00 C3/TCU (~.4 in) to #1 camalot (~1.5 in). Extra finger sized pieces (e.g. .3 - .5 camalots) useful. Nuts could certainly be useful, but I didn't place any.
Excellent climb, and certainly appears intimidating from the ground. I didn't feel any less intimidated after climbing it though! Certainly a step up in difficulty and commitment from Eagle's Nest , which is nominally rated the same.
