Description 

As with many routes on this wall, The Albatross is an incredible classic splitter crack that takes high quality stone through three distinct cruxes and a kneebar rest through one of the cleanest panels of stone on the wall. Gnarly fingers and hard jamming hit you right off the deck, but keep with it and you'll be rewarded with some of the most fun and dynamic face moves on the wall.

Location 

Left of Shock the Monkey, the obvious finger splitter that goes through the small roof past the fixed pin.

Protection 

Small stoppers, TCUs, a couple draws (for the fixed pin) and some medium sized gear (BD #0.5-1s) for the top.
