Follow the corner crack all the way to the top of the formation. It gets loose at the top and the crux is in the middle of the climb. From the top you can rappel down or try out new sport climbs that someone put up traversing onto some huecos.

Tail of the Cock was put up by Bob Draney and Sebastian Luque circa 1994.
Bob found evidence of possible prior ascent after placing the bolt so it could have an earlier FA. Maybe by Dave Thomas.
