DescriptionThis is an interesting and unique problem that climbs the right side of the main Widowmaker face. It has a sketchy start, strange routefinding, and a hair-raising topout. One must be pretty handy to successfully complete this problem.
Start standing on the slab on the right. This slab sticks out from the base of the boulder, so make sure to pad it correctly and be mindful of the edge when you do the first few moves of the problem. Reach high to a good hold at the lip, pull onto the wall, and start traversing left. Traverse a few moves left, about to the center of the wall, and then figure out the topout. Luckily, the leftward traverse moves one away from the scary slab ledge below, so the topout, though heady, has a pretty good landing below it.
