Description

Shares the same start as Apologies, but continues straight up the overhanging offwidth. Though it looks intimidating, there is an edge inside, allowing one to layback instead of using offwidth methods.

Protection

Full range of sizes.

This is a really good climb, ignored by most for the dirty start? Sep 9, 2014
Maybe people are put off by its supposed offwidthness? At least you don't need any huge gear.. Up to #3 is sufficient. Sep 10, 2014

Fun climb that should get more traffic. fun moves through the lower roof, and then a great handcrack/lieback through the 'wide' section. Sep 13, 2016
If this line weren’t a chute for dirt from above, it would be a classic. As is, it requires climbing through a little bit of dirty/chossy rock to gain access to some really cool hand crack climbing. Lower, it has some great hand cracks through roofs. The upper third is thuggish, but super protectable cracks. Wear long pants if you think Thigh Jamming is fun.

As for the grade, I personally find it harder to climb than Godzilla, my standard for 5.9 at Index. I’d give QC a 5.10a. I find it is comparable to Roger’s Corner in that on its own it’s an OK climb, but it will get you to other really fun lines above. Apr 23, 2018
