Description

Really fun route, great for a first "wide" lead. Climb the rightmost, wide, alimony crack.

Don't be intimidated by the appearance of the start, it's not as burly as it looks and it's more fun than the crack on the left. The first wide pod goes without any real offwidth moves.

Higher you will find opportunity for some true offwidth moves, though my partner managed to climb it with only a cowboy arete move and some shoulder jamming...

Save at least half your wide gear for the top. I found the Crux to be the wide section at the top, while my (shorter) partner found exiting the lower wide pod to be the crux.

Protection

Doubles 1" to 4"
An optional 5" and/or 6" piece should stitch it up if you don't want to run out at the top.

Two rappels from the bolts at the top will get you down.
