starting up


A nice, easy off-width line. More specifically, short burts of OW moves are nicely interrupted by great stem rests. Bolted anchor just below the rim.


Once at the base of Party In Your Pants (the one with the perma-top-rope and a village gathering at the base), the thin crack immediately left is Spinning Mars. The "thick" crack immediately left of that is In Too Deep (next wideness left is Blue Autumn I think).


2-6+ inches. We had two of the largest Camalots and would not have minded a 3rd (but manageable).

I always tell myself that I need to practice the OW technique. I had been putting it off for years and decided to go for it yesterday. Equiped with camalots 2,3,4. 2) #5 and green and blue big bros. If you are not used to wide stuff I would recommend the #6, or 2 of them. It was quite the battle for me. Not the hardest climbing but finding ways to protect it made for frayed nerves. It is always hard when there are undulating pods. The constrictions are great, but the void below makes for no feet and the void above makes for groveling hand arm positions. There are a few places where you have to move a ways above gear unless you bring loads of big cams. 2 double length slings can be used on chockstones.

I removed the 1/4" rusty chain from this anchor, but added new 3/8" chain and hangers to Spinning Mars. It is about 3' away.
