This is a right side in offwidth crack. It is harder than it looks.


It is around the corner (up canyon) from Willy's Hand Jive.

Is this the route that is called 'Boot Camp, 5.10' in the original Desert Rock, i.e. around the corner to the right from Willy's Hand Jive? Interestingly, I had heard 'Four Wheel Low' referred to as Aunt Jemima's Hand Stacks before.

It's a Grossman route. I did the second ascent, and it was totally beyond insane.

I don't think this route quite bumps into the 5.11 range, maybe 11a. In any case, this pitch is awesome, anybody with wide gear should try it.
