This is a very clean and striking crack. The lower portion seemed way hard if you don't stem. #5 C4 camelot is pretty tipped out in the narrowest part of the crack - next time I would just bring two #6 camelots. Bolts on top for belaying/TR and easy walk off. Aug 5, 2013

Big Juan is super fun, there are just enough features outside the crack to minimize the offwidthing if you are smart (which I wasn't). Can walk bomber #6 Friend from bottom to top, no need for any other gear if you are willing to walk the #6. Aug 22, 2015
