Description 

This is the obvious hands to offwidth roof formed between two closely matched boulders. It leans at a bit of an angle, and the inside of the crack is polished smooth by the wind. A great place to learn some tricks for offwidth roofs. Pulling the lip is not too bad.

Location 

This is up on the hill, in the pile of rocks. There is also a short crystal pulling problem on the knobby face straight back from The hobgoblin, and another roof crack around the corner to its left.

Protection 

A pad and a spotter are nice. The landing is nice and flat, but it would hurt to take a backslapper out of it.
