Description 

From RCM&W

Big offwidth crack, located in the corner right of Arms Race.


Location 

From North Tower, the cliff drops down, and the trail moves away from the cliff edge. For climbs in the vicinity of Arms Race, Spot a grove of tall birches while you are at the North Tower. Go to that grove, find an eroded area near the cliff edge, and pick a good spot for an 80-foot rappel. Otherwise, pick the cleanest looking area and fix a line (more than 80 feet most other areas)

I liked this route. It has interesting overhanging fist jams in the dihedral that can be skipped using face holds on the left...but that's no fun!

soooooooo CHOSSY. I can't decide what's worst: the bottom where a refrigerator-sized block came off and sliced my friends ankle to the point where he needed stitches OR the top which has two death flakes and about a truck bed's worth of sand, loose/eroding chockstones, and other assorted choss gems.

In conclusion, CHOSS. PLEASE CLEAN, ANYONE.
