Description 

Just left of Everyday 5.3 is a fairly obvious steep thin pod/corner.

You stem, lie back, jam up this corner onto some broken ground. Stay left of ED 5.3 and turn the small blocky roof to gain the really fun upper hand crack.

The small roof is fairly obvious from the ground and looks a bit grungy. As I recall, it's actually good climbing.

Crux is the bottom layback stuff to establish into and then exit the Head Cheese pod.

Not done very often (I think Larry C. did a second ascent) it's deserving of your time.

Smaller fingers will like it better than fat ones.
Some power lie backing required as I recall.


Location 

Step just right of Sin Ropa and you'll be looking up into the corner.


Protection 

Std rack.
