Description

No lines at the base of this route. As the name implies, this is an offwidth. It is located right of Potstash, an obvious 5.9 sport pitch on a roadcut, and left of Big Sky Mud Flaps. There are a wide variety of interesting moves required on this route, but the crux boils down to good old fashion off width grunting.

At any rate, adequate protection can be had with a #5 camalot (or 2) and a rack of standard gear. If you have something bigger, bring it as the #5 camalot will tip out and fall out at the most desperate places.

I'd recommend left side in on the bottom section. I stymied myself at the crux by going right side in, and now I'm of the opinion it would be better to go left side in on the upper section. Fortunately there's a drilled angle at the crux if you get discombobulated.

Protection

Standard rack, plus whatever wide gear you can find.
