Hobbit Hole Offwidth

V0, Boulder, 12 ft,  Avg: 3.1 from 98 votes
FA: unknown
California > Joshua Tree NP > Joshua Tree Bou… > Outback Bouldering > Hobbit Hole Boulder

Description

The obvious splitter offwidth. Gets wider as you go! Either climb it straight in like a man, or lieback it like a sissy. (I took the sissy way.) Same grade either way, but much more strenuous to jam it straight in.
