Cosmic Hippo


Start up the handish corner crack until you gain a ledge with a tree. This is where you test your luck. Begin up the offwidth, smearing and stemming while placing pro in the disappearing, increasingly mossy (seasonal) crack. After the nut check, get good pro in and continue into the belly of the beast. Place your larger pieces up high, then ride through the glorious finish.

If it wasn't so dirty, it would get my vote for the best offwidth in Arkansas.
