Jon on Impossible Crack

Description 

The crux is definitely the transfer into and out of the offwidth crack. Some may find it useful to use a headjam and it is definitely a route you'll need some energy for.


Location 

Head to the Wisconsin strip and use the usual scramble decent, head past inside corner about 20 ft. If you look up to your left you'll see an offwidth crack slightly overhanging and this is the route.


Protection 

A medium cam for the bottom and a #4 or #5 C4 for the offwidth section.

Seems like old school 5.9. Good route though

Not PG. Pro is good. Just hard off width. And tricky to not get tangled in your pro.
