Description [Edit]

An alright climb, this offwidth can be fun... if you're into offwidths. The bottom 15 feet (crux) especially offer the opportunity to practice your chicken-winging, handstacks, and knee locks. Reach the big ledge midway up, take a deep breath, and then climb the inside face behind the massive flake. Unless you brought BIG gear, don't expect pro from here until you reach the top.

If you're a completist, give this one a shot, otherwise there are better climbs for your attention.

Location [Edit]

Roughly 10 meters left of the swallow nests in the corner of the Swallow Wall, at the right (east) end of the Slab Wall, behind the Inclined Boulder, is a broken offwidth crack under the left edge of a huge flake. It only gets bigger as it goes up... Walk off.

Protection [Edit]

Trad gear. The crack is wide, so bring the big stuff, like a #5 if you've got it. There are a couple of slots that will take smaller cams as well. No bolted anchor: you'll have to build one at the top. Bring some more big stuff (#3 maybe?) for that, or just walk off.
