BETA PHOTO: Wide crack

Description 

Some nice feet on the arete of the crack wall at the beginning peter out a third of the way to make for a pretty blank extended crux that ends with a difficult mantle. A couple of easier moves for a second mantle will get you up to the anchors.

Definitely requires solid off-width technique. Long sleeves recommended.

Location 

Once you meet the cliff line above Shadow of a Man, walk to the right past the roof. The wide crack is in a left-facing dihedral

Protection 

#5 and #6 C4s

Bolted anchor with chain and rap rings
