Description 

Awkward wide crack. hand/fist, not a lot of offwidth.


Location 

Far left of Gandalf formation


Protection 

Really a #4 right below the crux is all the pro one could need or ask for. If a 4 is not at hand a 3 or 2 will still make for a safe climb.

Build your own anchor up top. Lots of obvious options.

Double checking my added route today. You Can definitely throw in some solid arm bars. Probably could use more practice at those anyways.

When you pull into the offwidth at the top, on the inside of the crack on the left is a good sidepull. This climb always felt so hard until I found this "secret" hold.
