3 out of 5 stars forgot about this one

Just to the left of Awful Width and Mangler..

I think you'd have to have really small hands to call it an offwidth... i remember i placed a #11 hex and a #4.5 cam

just look around and the fist jams should be abundant. Then you don't/shouldn't need any gear after the boulder-ish start as the angle lowers as the crack gets larger.

3 out of 5 stars hard start

After the tricky start it's mostly straight forward
