Birdland, 5.7+

5th Pitch- 100’- 5.7+/ This is by far the crux pitch of the climb. Move right out of the belay and into a decent sized crack. Follow the crack on easy holds as it narrows into a thin varnished finger seam that peters out onto steep slab for the last 10’ or so. Use a finger lock or two to advance so you can reach for a hand jam deep into a small foot ledge below the anchor. Mantle up to the anchor. You can face climb to the right, but probably at a grade or two higher.
