Description 

Start up behind the long-needled pine on the right side of the Bird's Nest. Climb steep cracks (2-3 gear placements) up to the bolted crux through the large, dramatic roof (5.11b). Continue past 11 more bolts (5.10) to the 2-bolt chained anchor. This is the Gem up on the Bird's Nest! Clean, compact, glacially polished granite!


Protection 

Except for the 2-3 placements to start this pitch, bolts protect the remaining 95'. A 70m rope (or 2 ropes) and 14 quickdraws are needed! 2-bolt chained anchor for descent.
