Hey, has anyone climbed this? The crack looks rad. Looks like you need a lot of wide stuff, I'd like to know if this is the case. Brian Hestetune

Have only stood under it and gawked - but yes you would need some very wide stuff. As in, the biggest of big bros, or some 2x4's, at least at the bottom. The overhanging lower section looks heinous - maybe a squeeze chimney??

The upper part with the nice crack is also quite wide, but would probably go with little or no actual OW technique since it's pretty low angle up there. (a fairly featureless slab route to the right goes at 5.9 - Earwig)
