This is the wide crack just to the left of Bush Crack. It starts off about fist sized and turns into a squeeze chimney towards the top. Great practice for squeeze chimney technique.


medium at the bottom to large at the top. You can prob use a 5 or 6 camalot towards the mid point. There is also a horizontal crack you can place some smaller gear in before moving into the squeeze chimney...Then just run it to the top. Good heel to toe jams down low.

Loved this off-width crack! Fantastic practice for arm bars, heel toe, a knee jam or two, maybe a couple leavittation moves, then transitioning into the squeeze chimney. If only both sections were longer!

You can layback the bottom if your just interested in the squeeze. You top rope it by setting up a trad anchor up top.
