Description [Suggest Change]

Like many of the routes in this area "tastes like chicken" follows a series of discontinuous cracks separated by restful ledges. Starts with a few cruxy moves into a wide hands crack, a quick rest, then a burly-looking offwidth for 15 feet (easier than it looks, the crack is highly featured). Finishes on perfect hands. Could be great preactice for wide technique if you ignore the features in the crack.

Location [Suggest Change]

on the far right side of the crag, look for the wide crack about 15 feet up.

Protection [Suggest Change]

gear .5-5" (a #4 camalot is perfectly adequate to protect the off-width if necessary).
