Shino on don't be a pussy

Description 

The definition of blue collar offwidth. Armbar and heel toe your way up this nasty just too small to squeeze corner offwidth. 3 green big bros would be ideal, the blue ones will go in a few spots but don't sit very well. Definitely R rated if you don't bring a few big bros (or a valley giant). Number 6's are tipped out/ no good after the first 15 feet. Fun?

Location 

Hard to miss, the gaping corner crack just past Morass and the corridor formed by the giant boulder.

Protection 

3 Green Big Bros, 2 #6's, single rack from .3 to 4 for the upper section. Jeans, long sleeves. 2 bolt anchor with a locker to lower off.

First 25 feet or so (about 5.10a) need bigger than a #6
If you're comfortable running it out on this size you can leave the big bros behind. There's some bomber small gear before you leave the security of the offwidth - you'll still need at least a 5 and preferably a 6 for the upper section.
