3 out of 5 stars Only Climb the Offwidth

I enjoyed climbing only the offwidth the entire time. I didn't face climb any portion. This is a great climb to learn the Arm Bar technique. My approach was to face the outlook wall, and armbar the offwidth, and use my feet on both walls. I enjoyed the climb. The more you get inside the crack the more you can focus on your technique. Don't be tempted to stay outside, and make it a lot easier.

2 out of 5 stars First Self Belay

This was a simple route to practice self belay using my cinch while waiting on people to show up. I mainly climbed this route as a face climb, utilizing the ledging for monitoring and adjusting my cinch.
