Description Suggest change

The business of this route is just off the ground - - bring your big gear for this OW/squeeze. Struggle, grunt & cuss your way thru 15 feet of clean off-width, too small to get all the way into, and too big to jam (chicken-wings sorta work). Note that it can be climbed on face holds mostly, if you want to avoid the OW. Then again, why would you be here if that's the goal?

Above, run thru the gully onto the face above, and choose one of many options to the top. Or, take the rap slings to your right back down (about 15' right)(you don't want to belay from these).

I'd just like to add that I have immense respect for those who climb OWs with grace, style & technique - - none of which I possess. This kicked my butt, and I'm sure I provided those on the ground with great entertainment watching me flounder.

Protection Suggest change

You get to use that big stuff that's been hanging uselessly on your rack. 2 #4 Camalots, a #5 is helpful. Several blocks to be slung as well. Upper section appears to take the standard stuff - - nuts & cams.
