Description 

Wiggle, wedge, and face climb up the wide crack. The bulges are the cruxes where the crack goes from 4" to 9 or more inches in places.

Location 

The offwidth directly right of "Slim and Curvy"

Protection 

Large Gear, Cams 4+ inches, tube chalks, Bro's etc. I would recommend gear to 7" though bigger would not hurt at all.


Finish on the bolted anchor to the right.

Surprisingly good, and not nearly as dirty as the guide says.
Good route for beginning OW climbers, but how many of them have the mongo cams? ;-)
