Description 

Midway up right side of ramp is this inclining off width. Much harder than it looks. Deception is it looks vertical and its first fifteen feet of crux are inclining and require pretzel logic to ascend. Then angle becomes vertical and grade of climbing more reasonable.

Location 

Vertical off width right midway up right side of the ramp.

Protection 

Giant cams but having none I had one piece in below it that would not help much because the low angle ramp would be hit with much force if I had fallen.
