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

The offwidth at the top is pretty intimidating doing this as your first trad lead, but on subsequent sends it's pretty awesome! The finger crack eats gear and there is a nice crack in the back of the offwidth that takes size 1 and 2 camalots and is a bomber jug for getting through this section.
The anchors on in an odd position out to the right and a (in my experience, useless) directional bolt is en route. Nov 25, 2018
