Description Suggest change

I'm not sure why I got on this route, maybe because my partner backed off of it, so I felt obligated. Anyway this short, flaring offwidth felt quite difficult for the given grade. Maybe it was because of the strenuous start getting into the offwidth or maybe it was the crappy rock which was continually raining down as I struggled to the anchor. Either way, this route starts at a water-streaked face that turns into an offwidth after about 6'. The initial moves getting into the offwidth are the crux and are very awkward.

Location Suggest change

This is the leftmost, wide crack on the northeast prow of Blair III. The start is identified by a dark, water streak coming from the offwidth above.

Protection Suggest change

This route takes #1 or #2 to #5 Camalots from what I recall. The smaller sizes are for the start. There is an anchor at the top but I don't think it was bolts.
