BETA PHOTO: Route from belay station

Description 

Climb some very loose rock (every hold crumbing) up to a stance and place some hand sized gear.

Climb over the bulge to get into the offwidth above.

Climb this and remember to look for solid face holds.

The crux comes towards the top with an offwidth bulge. (Solid 4 camalot placement at the edge of the bulge)

Location 

Far left side of green wall.
Around the corner from gerbil lies look for the obvious offwidth.

Protection 

Pro to 7"
But 5" would be sufficient
2 5" cams are nice but not required.

Chain anchor.
