DescriptionTwo towers of purple quartzite meet up at the crack between them. Walking up there used to be a large cobble that was lodged above the space to belay, but it has fallen.
Getting ThereHike about a half mile down the tumbled rocks trail from the parking lot by Messenger Creek looking out for when you see two very large boulders on your left far up (mid-way to the wall) a talus field from the trail, then you should navigate up the talus until you see Dead Tree Wall. The Hangman Towers will be on your left if you are facing Dead Tree Wall. I am apologize I don't have a better description but I have not seen this climb on Mountain Project before, the guidebook has only a brief description.
From the description of an adjacent route to the offwidth(I think the guidebook's description fits the hands/fist crack on the climbers left side when looking at the wall), the old guidebook by Sven Olof Swartling describes getting to Dirty Inside Corner 5.6,"There are scattered rocks which deserve some mention 100 to 500 feet north of Dead Tree Wall. ... Deep inside corner and crack with overhang. ... To avoid the possibility, use an incredibly dirty chockstone".
