Description 

This is it, the best wide crack in Georgia! great training for those who want to do the classic routes out west. Just climb the crack from a stand start (probably only V3) or from a sit start on fat hand jams. In case you are new to the technique of overhanging offwidths, the easiest way to do it is to do hang from fist-hand stacks and then jam a leg / foot / knee way up in the crack. Theres a good edge to stand on at half height and the top part is much easier. Wear long pants, long sleeves, and shoes big enough to wear socks under them and it shouldn't be much more painful then anything else at boat rock. Do it!

Location 

Easy Crack Area. If you are looking at easy crack, go right trough a corridor, duck under a little boulder and you'll be right there.

Protection 

a good spotter is a good idea because its not hard to get your foot / leg stuck if you are new to the technique.
