Description 

Climb the offwidth, which is actually fun. I give it a 5+ rating for the OW. ;-)

This route is located by taking the Climber's Trail to the Grocery Store Wall, then hiking North along the base of the rock to the very end of the wall. The routes on this face are all North-facing.

Protection 

Several cams up to 4" and some Aliens or tri-cams for pockets on the face.

This route has tons of hidden jugs on the face that didn't require any use of the actual crack. As Ben said, if you want to lead bring some tricams etc. for pockets or get some big cams/ pro. A few cam placements can be used for a TR.

TR-ed this today. The short people said it felt 5.6-5.7.

A good TR climb for those without large gear. TR anchor is a somewhat sketchy bolt and a crack which takes largish cams. Live with two pieces or bring some really loooong webbing. Beautiful climb in any case, my first in CO.

Went up the offwidth. Actually fairly straightforward (or upward, I guess), with two great spots to relax and regain composure, about dividing the route in thirds. Arm and leg locking techniques come in quite handy.

TR'd with my wife today. Will probably feel more like 5.6 or 5.7 in couple of places if you are short, but it has good rests. Although the route follows the offwidth, it's probably easier to climb using the face on either side of the crack. Fun climb, but short like everything else here.
