Great route to hone some of your wide crack technique. An awkward, slightly overhung corner crack off of the ground turns into 'enjoyable' wide terrain with the occasional pod. The consistently sized crack will suddenly reverse direction and turn into an overhang that will take you to the chains shared with Scarface.

Definitely an interesting OW introduction without ever feeling too much like an OW brawl-fest. Lots of butterfly stacking! Feels awesomely secure if you play your cards right.

Notes:

- Gear: one #2, double #3, triple #4, one #5, one (optional) #6 (can be a nice peace-of-mind)
- Wide gear can be trolleyed a ways, if necessary. Apr 14, 2015
