Thanks for the great tips everyone. I got back on Birdland this past week and finished the lead. Your gear suggestions helped. I climbed to the crux, put in two pieces, equalized them, downclimbed to milk the rest (thanks Lester), then made the move. The first time I tried it, I had some metolius TCUs but I didn't have the yellow one, I didn't own any Aliens, and my nuts are DMM Walnuts. I have since purchased a few Aliens and I borrowed a yellow TCU. I found that walnuts don't fit as well as other nuts in that crack and there are other cams that work better in that crack than my small friends (I don't have the new zeros). This different selection of gear made a big difference. It also helped that the day prior, I boosted my confidence with my first onsite 5.9 lead on Higher Stannard (I know it's only 5.9-). Anyway, thanks for the gear pointers, it made a huge difference!
