Mike passing the squeeze near the top of the first...

Description 

Crank hard to establish in the crack and climb 70 feet of big #5 and #6 offwidth. The crack tapers to handjams and squeezes through an overhang. Belay above this squeeze and before the hanging, triangular block. Pass the block in a hand and fist crack on the right, neatly step through a bombay chimney above, and crank up to a mantel topout.

Location 

Start 10 feet right of the left-facing corner offwidth Sidewinder.

Descend by a lengthy downclimb of the back side of Turkey Tail to the right or two rappels from bolts on the front side, also to the right.

Protection 

At least doubles to a #6 C4. An extra #5 might be nice but is not necessary.
