The left-leaning crackline/groove on the right-hand edge of the main cave. The crux is to join the iceplant in the groove by climbing the slippery black crack, or do a few moves up Hawk and a long step left. The route ends on the Aviary ledges. Worthwhile pro is only available above the crux or in Hawk.
Combined with Arrow this makes a classic first lead. Hardest at the bottom, though many beginners find the traverse left (to Arrow) freaky.
