Description

This is the widish crack to the right of the Chimney left of Ragger Bagger on Turkey Perch. Looks like an offwidth, but has hidden holds inside so it feels more like a face route. Nice pitch-if it was more sustained I would give it another star.

Protection

Light rack with a few big cams.

I thought this thing was great! I brought some nuts, single 1 and 2, two #3s, two #4s, BD #5, WC #5, BD #6, and WC #6. I think I placed everything but the 3s and the BD #6. Sure, the gear was overkill (probably can protect with smaller gear), but I knew nothing about the climb. I will never turn down a chance to get in some wide crack and practice jamming, armbarring, and heel toe cams. How else are you supposed to practice? This thing was a fun romp with a good ledge for an anchor, and you can walk off. I say, do it! Apr 6, 2015

This route is named Easy Off-Width in Rock Climbing Colorado. Nov 4, 2010
I was one of those people...until I realized it sucked! It has some fun moves, but overall is short and yes, offwidth. Maybe if I had a 4 and 4.5 Camalot I would have enjoyed it more. As the cracks converge towards the top, I had one foot in each crack and found myself humping the bulge of rock in the middle--definately the highlight of the climb. Nov 25, 2001
