Description:

Dihedral left of Scared Seamless, continuous offwidth up the corner. Unknown if this has been climbed before. It didn't seem to have had any traffic. I haven't done much offwidth, so rating is iffy.

Descent Options:

Can rap off of piton (only one) above Scared Seamless.

4 out of 5 stars Burly Climb

Even though we topped ropped this climb due to not having cams big enough to lead it, it was a blast. Loved every minute of this nice offwidth. It would not be a great crack if you did not come off it with some good scraps. The crux for me was once out of the crack and moving right after the last bolt. There where some real slim pickin's at that point trying to get to the ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Bloody good fun

Required some offwidth technique or tenuous chimneying. Worth the bushwack.
