Climbs the obvious offwidth crack just between Gravity Kills (5.10a) on the left and Cruise Control (5.10a) on the right.

The route provides some fun, wide crack climbing and never feels thrutchy or weird (facing left seems easier). Gear belay or cut left and use the bolt anchors atop Gravity Kills.


Gear to 4 inches or larger

Went up this thinking pro would be thin for me as my biggest cam was a BD #3. Overestimated the width and ended up doing it free solo without any problems fortunately. My 3 scraped the tips at one spot and wouldn't even touch both sides anywhere else. Definitely bring sizes 4-6 if you want to tick this or expect a free solo.
