Description:

When leaving the Goan Corner guesthouse, look a little right toward the boulders. The climb is the OBVIOUS splitter offwidth that gets wider at the top. I borrowed a scythe to cut a trail to it, so I'm pretty damn sure it's an FA. Work your way up the lower overhanging offwidth until you're standing on the flake on the right side. Try to get your hips in, then thrash to the top. It gets easier the whole way up.

Descent Options:

Walk off right

3 out of 5 stars FA!

As someone who loves offwidth, this line had to be done. On a rest day I cut a trail and sent it easily. In Yosemite it would probably be about 5.9. Not a single person would repeat it among many, some who claimed "I can lead 5.12 trad." Realistically, the trail will probably grow over and this beautiful line will never be repeated due to it's nature.
