Description 

Climb the offwidth/chimney in a [left]-facing corner. Choose which side of your body will be in the crack carefully (note the name of the route). About halfway up the route, there will be a flake inside the left side of the crack. This will offer gear options outside large cams and Big Bros, as well as hand and foot holds. Continue past the flake (at this point you are most likely inside the crack), and enter the slightly overhanging offwidth (crux). Swim to the top, and build a gear anchor.

Location 

The route is visible from the Lower Blair parking area. Follow the approach to Awakening to Fat Mosquitoes, and walk to the south and around a corner. The route is located in a right-facing corner.

Protection 

Tipped out #6 Camalot, Big Bros, Valley Giant, and some small stuff for the flake.
