I'm not good at ow, but I'm determined to embrace the wide. Gotta pay some dues. Any recommendations on where to begin at the creek, climbs #5&6 camalot, wide? JMo

In addition to Way Nutter, there is a 5.10 OW at Way Rambo that is pretty good, and not too difficult. I don't remember the name (it may not be int he guidebook) but it is a little to the R of Layaway Plan. So, that would be a good wall to go to to do some OWing. JCM

I think that 5.10 OW is called desire. there's a plaque on the ground. Get ready to loose some blood Jake Kay

+1 for P1 of Amaretto. Three Pigs in a Slot (right of Gorilla at SCB)is only ~50ft to first (only?) anchor and has some good 5.10ish offwidth in there. AndyBG

First, Way Nutter at Way Rambo Wall, then jump on Serrator. You can learn how to stack and kneelock and send a classic all at once. Brandon Gottung

I agree that the 1st pitch of Ammeretto is a good intro.
Also the unnamed at Blue Gramma (5.10+) next to Unnammed 5.9. or the group of three climbs left of that.
Isn't it an oxymoron? easy and off-width? If its that easy then you can side pull or use the good foot features. Then you aren't truly getting the off-width adventure or stacking or levitating. You are not grinding the skin off your ankles and elbows.
The Incisor at Broken tooth was suggested. That thing is a beast (see photo) it is #4's out a roof. No way beginner. I just about shit myself on this climb when I was a beginner.
Try the shorty's at Blue Gramma
Good luck with your quest.
