BETA PHOTO: OW of Convenience Topo

Description 

The vast scale of all the surrounding vistas will tweak your perspective at this line. The rock is fair but as you get higher the off-width will work you like a new bride. The crux is having enough of and the right size of gear. There are two bolts at the widest section of the gaping maw, but that is only because there is no gear that wide. The rest of the OW is BD 6s and LARGER. This will go free at 11d or so.

Location 

Obvious right facing OW dihedrial on the north side of the Bride and visible as you approach.
