Description 

Offwidth at any grade makes the grade feel a little harder. Marranon is rated a little stiffer is you restrain yourself from using hold inside the offwidth crack.


Protection 

Standard rack. Wide Gear. Two bolt anchor.

I definitely am a worthless offwidth climber and struggled up this thing using the chockstones in the crack and utilizing left hand and foot face holds of "Dope on a rope", while flailing with my right appendages in the crack. So I dont care if you offwidth officianados want to call this crack 5.9, its rated 5.10a in Messiers guide and I am sticking to it.
