An offwidth crack to easy and long face. It's possible to face climb the moves off the ground and avoid the awkward offwidth moves.

The off width is interesting and I found it was pretty fun, doesn't look like this route gets much action.

Awesome off-width, definitely challenging no matter your height or body type. Beta: first move off the ground - bomber holds to super secure high knee bar (first clip); between second and third bolt, chicken wing all the way (start facing left, shoulder jam to switch facing right). Spectacular once you work out the sequence that works for you.
