BETA PHOTO: Begin the groveling. Surprise (5.8) on Struggler C...

Description 

Offwidth just wider than stacked fists at the bottom, but not wide enough for a good kneebar. Getting up to the lip is the hardest part, then stay in the crack for continued groveling lessons, working your way back and up at the same time. A fun climb to learn technique on.

Location 

Offwidth crack next to the Knobby Wall; the leftmost crack on Struggler Cliff.

Protection 

Can be led with wide gear (5 inches on up). Can be toproped from the Knobby Wall anchor
