Description 

There are some decent holds inside the crack, not too many face holds. Just wonderful awkward off-width jamming.

Location 

The off-width to the right of the chimney, left of the three parallel jam cracks. Approach to the right up a switchback type trail, find the route by looking for the 4 ft bulge of rock next to the chimney.

Protection 

Large cams will get the job done. Best top-roped from the trees above, several good options.

CONDITION REPORT 
Very dirty climb, if you're into that.

This climb is kind of ridiculous. It's a ballsy lead. Very very awkward. Think 5.7 PG but don't try it unless you are experienced!!

I agree its a bit awkward but if you are competent at placing gear it's not that bad. Maybe not a route to break into the grade but if your looking at off widths your probably a little twisted and this is a fun intro to the wide stuff with out having to dry heave on lead.

i agree with 'russ' and 'read.'

5.6 does not come to mind on this climb. 5.7PG is a more realistic rating. awkward, tough lead.
