Description 

This is the obvious wide crack, just right of Wooly Spider which splits the right side of the of the formation's northwest face.

Start in a chimney which progressively narrows to offwidth and then hands. Belay from gear and rap off using anchors atop Wooly Spider or Arachnids. Best done on a cold day when you'll be bundled up as the rock is very coarse and grainy.

A short and somewhat unpleasant route that can only be recommended as practice for wide cracks, but you could do better. Zero stars out of five for lack of distinction.
