This crack is loaded with pigeons and and a large amount of their feces, avoid unless you bring a respirator and hand sanitizer! Jan 1, 2015

Didn't have too much trouble with feces, but there was the beginnings of a nest when I did it the other day.
The offwidth at the top can look intimidating, but there's a crack inside (climber's left) that takes hand-sized pro pretty easily. Largest I placed was an old-style #3.5 camalot (~#4 friend/new style C4). Fortunately, the crux is the finger-crack down low, and there are plenty of holds, rather than just jams, to make that section go.
There's a seriously loose and flexing flake to the right during that offwidth section that isn't long for this world. Definitely keep the rope out of the fall zone, and put a helmet on the belayer! May 10, 2015

Didn't really have any issues with bird shit on this one. I thought it was good for the grade. Gear up to 1", with perhaps a #2 before the offwidth section up top. There's also a small vertical crack in the OW that I managed to place a very small offset cam. Mar 12, 2017

I didn't want a pigeon shit thrutch up top (nor did I think I had the gear), so I traversed over to the last bolt of Tidy Up, which was a fun way to finish.
I don't know what its rated this way, maybe 5.9?
I didn't have any extending draws and didn't have a problem, but they might help if you finish this way. Mar 22, 2017

Climbed the off width looking for a hold, reached around the back and accidentally grabbed a pigeon. Safe to say the pigeon is still there. Fun climb though. Apr 1, 2018
So much pidgeon. But great for a first timers’ trad lead: awesome gear placement and plenty of opportunities to stand comfortably and rest. Apr 7, 2018
