Right-leaning and slightly overhanging off-width. This climb is just right of Hubba Bubba - impossible to miss.

awesome OW primer. If you layback, you're only cheating yourself.

4 out of 5 stars Loved it

What a great route. The new guidebook says that it was retrobolted because nobody carries around a rack full of #3s and #4s. I guess, but come on! Anyway, in some ways I'm glad it was bolted, because I didn't have the requisite gear for it. This was my first stab at an offwidth. I fell at the very top (where it gets easy), as I was pumped out of my mind. Anyway, a great climb.

4 out of 5 stars don't be intimidated

don't let the words "offwidth" scare you. good holds where you need them and what better way to practice crack than on bolts?
