Description

This is a nice "practice" offwidth under Sphinx rock. Very clean and very splitter, just a bit short. A couple of fist moves get you to the business. Some fancy stuff can work low then chicken wings and heel toes past the crux and finally a bit of squeezing. If not for the fact that it starts off some blocks, it would be a great boulder "problem".

Protection

Biggins and some pants.
