This corner is often wet, which is nice 'cause then you have an excuse not to lead it.... However, when it drys out, it is a great climb to test yourself on....I've climbed harder grades, but this is one of the most strenuous leads I've done.... Be ready to sweat....
Starts out as a nice, hand crack leading up to a low roof the hand crack turns to off-width and the fun starts.... Climb out of the roof with awkward positioning and slippery feet till the crack turns to hands again.... A stance will let you catch your breath.... There seems to be options at the top, but I follow a thin finger crack and a few face moves to the top....
To the left of Obscene Phone Call (5.8), there is an intimidating corner with a roof about 10 feet off the ground, this is Climber's Corner....
A regular rack could do it, but I used a #5 Camalot in the offwidth, roof crack (I just love to play with big cams, I guess), and it was helpful....
Belay or TR from trees....

MY favorite climb on the upper cliff. wc6 and bd4 make it comfortable for me.
