Thunderbolt Peak in the Palisades

Lead Dolphin in JTree two weekends ago. Id like to try some other off widths because that sort of climbing is exhausting and in some weird way, fun. I saw a slideshow at a SCMA meeting last year about Big Bear and one route was an offwidth. Anyone know the name and location of this climb?

While we are on the subject; I go to Yosemite a lot. Any good OWs there that people can recommend? Dolphin is a 5.7 and exhausted me for about 15 minutes afterwards so Id prefer something comparable in rating.

It's hard to beat the Generator Crack for convenient roadside odub. Harder than the Dolphin but is generally TR'ed so have at it.

There's a cool 5.7 squeeze on the Camp 4 Wall.

Trial By Fire will work you pretty good; harder than it looks.

I bet if you search on Supertopo you can find several hours' worth of discussion of this very topic- probably a way better resource than MP for this topic.

Thanks for the route recommendations.

Cool website. The name makes it sound dirty.

If you like hiking, head out to the Beak Boulder Area.

Plenty of wide routes, most of which can be set up on TR through a system of caves/chimneys/scrambling within the formation.

Been searching through big bear / holcomb valley and cannot find any OW. I know there is at least one. Would love to find the route before heading out there within the month.

Is there some 5.10 or 5.11 OW on like Fishermans Buttress or something? Can't find the guidebook right now.... but there is a rumor.

Holcomb Valley: wasn't able to fund much either but check the current guide book. Researched and did a hand full of them over the summer. I'd say there were about 10-15 in the area. Check out mushroom boulder in the book. Of the climbs I did up there the grades seemed to be really soft so keep it in mind when picking routes. 5.10 felt closer to a 5.7 in the valley or josh and if I may say so not worth doing may want to look closer at josh tahquitz or Woodson instead. Here's a link to one route in the database. This route is the exception to what I said earlier.

Tons of wide in the valley. DNB of middle cathedral, steck-salathe, ahab, generator crack, la ccosita left and other 5.9 right there, flare to the left of bishops terrace is 5.8, and the list goes on and on.

The top of Orphan (5.9) on the Old Woman is always good for a thrutch.
