Brushy low angle climbing to a beautiful splitter finger crack, tips to rattly fingers. Might be a fixed LA down low getting to the splitter? The route was lead with mixed free/aid and top roped clean.

In 2013 a variant was freed by Conor Cliffe and Tom Draper at 10c using a different start, beginning just left of the start of Angel (357) and moving left around the arete to gain the crack. See note below


Head all the way down to the left (lower) edge of the Alcove and scramble down past a huge boulder to swing around the corner. On the right, above some slabby ledge, you will see a right facing corner with a crack (Green Dolphin Street) and an inviting looking vertical finger crack to it's right, Pick Your Crack.


Single rack to 1", maybe an extra yellow TCU. Crack goes from tips to rattly finger, old bolt anchor (needs to be replaced)

From a note from Conor Cliffe

"We (Conor and Tom Draper) also freed 'pick yer crack' at 10c. you have a good description of it on MP already. we began on the block down low and left from Angel and whipped around the arete - we felt that the aid party had a better approach (ours was a little spicy). Single rack to 1''. Crack goes from tips to rattly fingers. Beautiful. Very pure. There is a an old two bolt anchor up there. I will replace them when I get a chance and go do the anchor on Angel. Could use some cleaning - a little crude as is. We called it 'Divine Intervention'. "
