Description:

Facing the crag this is the obvious flaring crack all the way to the right. Long flaring sometimes offwith chimney-ish 140' scrape fest. This route is aptly named. Bring some big gear and offwidth technique. 2 rope rap off of slings.

4 out of 5 stars Fun and long

A great climb to get into a little offwidth for a newbie with plenty of meat and potatoe jamming as well. Bring plenty of # 3 to #5 Camalots, I had to leap frog gear. Great clean route
