I am about to get owned by the Monster.


This line entices you with 3 feet of perfect splitter hands until you gain a ledge and stare up at the jagged gaping maw of the overhung offwidth you are about to plunge into, or plunge out of. The first 20 feet after the ledge isn't that bad. After that, it gets wide and really irregular, one side sticks out farther than the other, one side is really jagged, and it slants weirdly in the back. It's a great one to grapple with. Hard.


This is past S Crack by about 100-150 feet. It is left-facing.


2, 3, (2)4, (2)5, maybe (2) 6s.

This is a good adventure, and I suggest the #6. I didn't have one and wanted one badly. It got run out for me without one.

Looks way hard, but is there a line going up that thin corner right to the left of the climb?

I would add that if you have large knees (and even calves), you will have a HELL of a time getting the top crux. I was doing a bizarre hand stack with zero feet and humping the hands up. I wasn't able to get a knee or even a calf in until I was nearly at the chains. 5.11 for me.
