The Squamish Offwidths List

I've been been getting more and more into climbing wide-stuff and found it's lots of fun when there's a nice progression in difficulty : )

So I've been compiling a comprehensive Squamish Off-width List to share with other enthusiasts. Does anyone know of any off-widths in or around Squamish that I've missed on the list? I'd be stoked to get more entries if there's something not on there.

Also general OW stoke is appreciated.

No. Off widths are kind of sado-masochistic IMO. But it is probably one of the most prominent visual features in Squamish, maybe after Pipeline. The fact it is an Andrew Boyd route would add credence to its fearsome rep.

That is true. It's beyond offwidth though - it's probably two meters wide in a couple spots. I got some good looks at it while climbing New Life, and it's just choked with vegetation in places. Looked like some epic chockstone tunneling way in the back in total darkness.
