Climb a wide, steep, right facing crack with a committing lie back move. You can finish up the 5.5 gully left of Macondo, or finish on the 5.9 bolted upper section of Macondo. The right 5.5 finish is loose and not recommended.

Two of us top-roped this in November 2013. We thought the right-facing dihedral, which was fun to climb, was 5.8. The rotten face above was harder, feeling like 5.9. My partner pulled off a few baseball-to-softball sized rocks off the rotten face.

I took a #4 and #5 and leap frogged them up the crack.
