Description

There are some decent holds inside the crack, not too many face holds. Just wonderful awkward off-width jamming.

Location

The off-width to the right of the chimney, left of the three parallel jam cracks. Approach to the right up a switchback type trail, find the route by looking for the 4 ft bulge of rock next to the chimney.

Protection

Large cams will get the job done. Best top-roped from the trees above, several good options.

This climb is kind of ridiculous. It's a ballsy lead. Very very awkward. Think 5.7 PG but don't try it unless you are experienced!! Oct 20, 2013

I agree its a bit awkward but if you are competent at placing gear it's not that bad. Maybe not a route to break into the grade but if your looking at off widths your probably a little twisted and this is a fun intro to the wide stuff with out having to dry heave on lead. Jun 18, 2014

i agree with 'russ' and 'read.'

5.6 does not come to mind on this climb. 5.7PG is a more realistic rating. awkward, tough lead. Sep 7, 2014

First off-width I ever lead, the gear is fine, but it definitely wasn't an easy or fun time. Just kidding, I had a lot of fun. Jul 12, 2015

Not very tall (i.e. short stuff) but can easily be TR and a good place to practice off-width Jun 11, 2016
