Recently developed a love for the weird and the wide so I'm looking for the best O.W that the local canyons in Boulder have to offer.. I can't make it to the vu on weekdays so I'm looking for anything within 30 minutes of boulder.. Give me you list of the best..(or the worst I dont' care I just wanna keep working on developing my O.W skills.. currently have on sighted a few 5.10 o.w in the Gunks and also in vedauwoo. so I'm looking to keep pushing the skills upwards.

Grand Giraffe in Eldorado Canyon is a fun multi with a crux pitch featuring some proper wide.

By gully at Castle Rock is super fun, but more of a squeeze than OW. Gates of eden at Bell buttress is a good one, pretty short though and much easier than the assigned 10a grade if you actually off width it. Umphs slot is wonderful, very worthy of the 10d grade.

Funeral March on the west Ridge in eldo is one of the more sustained wide cracks in eldo, tread lightly at the top though. Erickson's wide crack on the wind tower is worth checking out during the week, but not worth the weekend shit show.

Crack a beer in CCC, bacon and ergs, the diving board, and Haradrim in ssv are all on my personal to do list.

Lots of good ones in the platte too, and lumpy. My vote for hardest 5.10 in the world is crack of fear.

Also, drop me a line if you ever need a partner for this sort of thing. I always am stoked to get on anything wide but shockingly, it isn't as easy to find others who are as excited for suffering..

Oh and: mountainproject.com/v/tuesd...

Huston crack at cob rock.

At lumpy there's Conads to wolf's tooth...That's a fun link up. Yosemite crack is short, but sweet. Kor's flake and turnkorner are some to-do's for me...

Take a week and go to vedauwoo next year ;)

Just wne to the vu two weeks ago only got on one O.W (mainstreet) which was a blast! It's nice to get some stuff that's only a 5 minute ride away.. I do plan on some more trips up to Wyoming next spring...
