same as Child's Play. Bird's Nest is the route to the right of They Died Laughing with a large alcove halfway up (reportedly it had a bird's nest at some point.)

Route Description

start up a twin crack system on often slippery rock up to the alcove. This section is harder than it looks. From the alcove step right, up to another ledge, and up another twin crack system. The crux (5.9) is exiting the cracks onto a sloping ledge - awkward and pumpy. After the ledge, another short vertical section and then up a slab to the two bolt anchor on top.

Essential Gear

small and medium nuts and friends.
