Description

The most moderate of the Birdie Cracks. Begin up an easy chimney to a stance below the constriction. There's a useful jug on the left side here which will help you transition into a lieback. After a couple feet move back into the offwidth and chickenwing the rest of the way to the top. Does not require 5.10 offwidth technique as the crux is a pull up on a jug and transition into the lieback move.

5.11a Variation - Chimney up a short ways and then hand traverse out left on the hand crack. Finish at the top of Left Birdie Crack.

Protection

If leading all you need is a couple 4.5" pieces. The anchor takes 2-3" gear.
