An Offwidth Roof Problem over in Moderate Mecca

Description 

Wide roof low to the ground just after entering the moderate mecca cliffband. Start on crimps in the crack (easier) or a double-fist stack (harder). Kick through to the lip to an easy topout. Somewhat foot-size dependent, since it is about 8-9" most of the way (or just requiring good technique).


Protection 

Crashpad helpful.
