Pinching Bird Shit

A 4-star route with a name like that? It might be reaching a bit to call it 4-stars, but I do think this is one of the best routes at this crag. I don't get the name - I didn't do any pinches on the route, and definitely didn't encounter any bird droppings.
This is a steep 40 ft route in the cave, overhanging 7 or 8 feet.
Starts out interesting right off the deck, and has a really continuous series of overhanging moves out to the anchors. Lots of jugs to keep the pump down, but there is a thuggish crux about halfway up.
In the back left side of the cave.
4 bolts to chains - and an attentive belayer! There is a rock ramp in the back of the cave that could be a little dangerous if you have out too much slack.

Not as cool as Banana Dance but definitely deserves to be climbed. The crux is between the second and third clip where you encounter a sloper and a crimp on an otherwise jug haul. The top hold is pretty sandy.

This climb reflects what is fun about sport climbing. You spot a featured overhanging section of cool looking rock and you just want to see if you can climb it. This one will spit you off if you hesitate at the crux!
