This off width is fun! I know you do not often hear those words spoken, but here it is true! Perhaps it is the unique location, perhaps it is the length or quality of rock, but I think what gives this line the fun factor is the old-school liebacking needed for the first 20 feet (the crux), in any event, (I know I sound like a drug dealer) try it, you will like it!


Follow the trail past the "Stargate Tower" and past a small detached pillar composed of very dark colored welded tuff that is now being called the "Tower of Darkness." Head up a few loose steps of talus and and cut back sharply left or south into an improbable looking hole/chimney. Head into this formidable and dark place turning right and then left to reach a right facing dihedral containing the off width.


Bring one BD #1, one #3, three #4s and maybe one #5 which gets you to chains.
