Great offwidth training; makes me feel like I'm in Yosemite. I led it with a #5 C4 down low and placed a #2 Metolius in the flake inside the offwidth near the top. I think a #6 would protect it much better than my #5 did, but it seems a 6 would also get in the way.
Towards the top when you think you've lost all hope, look for a good foot on the face out left.
For such a short climb it felt very airy due to its location high on the hillside.
