BETA PHOTO: The difficult glory of Struggler (5.9) on Struggle...


Struggler is the off-width crack on the right side of the Struggler Cliff. It is a very challenging crack but some features on the right wall facilitate the climbing. If you don't use these features its 5.10+


Pro to 5 inches.

There is a old metal device to keep a toprope from rubbing the edge, but use it with caution. A tree above the slabby top section can be used for an anchor.

The most work I have ever done to gain 20 feet. Gnarly offwidth, it lived up to it's name!

2 bolts for this route? i dont think so. there is some sketchy home made thingy though and even better bring a bunch of webbing or static to create an anchor off the big tree about 15 feet back from the ledge
