Kicking out the Mad Wife.

Description 

Wide crack about 40' left of the "Direct" start of Crepes Corner (also known as the Cuisinhart for it's razor like nature).

A bit crusty but good for the novice wide leader. Protects well with just a few wide pieces.


Location 

Obvious wide crack near Lunch Ledge. Scramble off to Crepes, or climb Wind/Shelob's Lair to continue. Rappel is possible, too.


Protection 

To 4" or bring a 5 or 6 if you have them. Not mandatory though. Thins/eases up pretty quick.
