Leavittate the left leaning wide flake/crack on the boulder behind Plumber's Crack. It can be laybacked at about 5.6, but that defeats the purpose of the exercise.

Protection

Crashpad helpful if the heel-toe jams get too painful and you have to bail onto your head.

[Hide Comment] This thing is really fun, it can be climbed in a million different ways and is great training for wide stuff. A great place to get used to stacks, arm bars, chicken wings, knee jams, etc. The most ridiculous (and difficult) way is to sit start in a hand stack, pull an inversion, and do the whole thing feet first. Obviously this just makes it harder and is pretty absurd, but for entertainment and ab strength it's cool. Mar 18, 2012

[Hide Comment] I have rated LWC appropriately with respect to all the variations. 3rd Class (layback) V1 (straight in this thing is like a 5.10 OW) and X (if you sit start, stack and invert). Overall, if this thing isn't deemed classic by the end of the season there is seriously something wrong with you people. Mar 19, 2012
