If you like off-width, then this route is for you. The crack opens to fists, arcs left and joins "Black-Jones Direct". Bulge your biceps... 'cuz it's a grunt.
The ominous looking crack just left of the first pitch of Durrance.

If you're just doing the first pitch, it really isn't an offwidth, but mostly cupped hands and fists. Bring several #3 camalots and a #4. Fun climbing, with some flaky rock typical of this zone on the Tower. You can rap/TR this pitch with a single 70m if you watch the ends and scramble up off the big belay ledge a bit (easy).

Great route! Triples in 3s and 4s protects it well. A 4.5 is nice at the crux but not necessary. Few finger pieces at the bottom, save a .75 for the step left, and two 3s for afterwards. Anchor isn't the best, but if you're top roping- you can back up the anchor with a #4
