Topping out on Buoux OW

Description 

Awesome off-width crack on the opposite side of the Buoux Crack problem.
A little harder, but much shorter than the Buoux Crack.

The crack is flared on one side and provides some unique climbing that's not often seen in Joe's Valley.

Once you get started, you can fit your whole body inside and chicken wing your way up to the top. Gets easier closer to the top.

The rating is rather irrelevant, if you can climb crack, you'll zip up the problem. Otherwise it can easily serve you up a nice slice of humble pie.

Location 

Located on the front side of the Buoux boulder. Obvious offwidth crack splitting the boulder in half

Protection 

just a pad or two at the bottom is plenty good.
