BETA PHOTO: throw a 6 down low to start if you want... I left ...


Offwidth to fingers in about 60 feet. Great climb that isn't done too often, so it is a little mungy.




Standard Trad rack with one wide piece for the start.

Great route, got on this again yesterday, a classic of it's kind. Bring a 6 and 4 and then standard single rack for the remainder. Use the rests or it'll feel harder.

Climbed this one the other day...April 3rd 2012. It was wet, dirty and full of flies the top of the crack had a good foot lengths of moss growing in it...everything a good neglected route should have...she needs some traffic! A really fun route to thrutch around on if you're into Offwidth stuff. I may come back n clean her up some more.
