BETA PHOTO: no answer 5.8 off width crack where rope is hangin...


So the old guide book gives this 5.6+... I would feel like a bad person calling it that since i can run laps on .9s and .10s and this one gives me trouble... Feel free to give your vote if you think its a walk...

Anyway, climb the hand crack leading up to the off-width above... That is the hard part... I found that grunting was helpful...


A few feet right of Obscene Phone Call (5.8) there is an Off Width crack... Um... thats the route...


Bring a big OW cam if you lead it...

I don't know if you need the big gun for the lead, but I agree that this and OPC are both way .7+ or .8

#6 protects it beautifully, but there's also a smaller crack at the back that takes 0.3 to 0.4 -- I think it would be safe enough.

Rock Climbing Photo: Watch Out! This rock is loose!
Watch Out! This rock is loose!

I've added this photo for safety's sake. This rock moves and is just waiting for its chance to come down on your head. the topside is a jug that just screams to be grabbed and feels bomber until you actually go to make a move.Some climbers have marked it with chalk from time to time, but the rain seems to get to it. Please be careful out there
