Description:

The first crack left of Space Oddity, this offwidth goes from the bottom of the Coke Bottle all the way to the top in a large dihedral. Very continuous in size. Crux is low, turning the bulge, then slowly wider to the top, but at slightly less than vertical.

Pretty much a #6 cam the whole way up. One or two #5 placements, and three? bolts on the way up.

Great route. Definitely start out with right side in, facing the wall through the crux. My boyfriend tried to lead it facing out and it was a no go. I thought this wide crack was easier than most offwidths as I used delicate face moves and one foot heel-to-toe in the crack with an occasional arm bar to move up. Not as physical as other climbs I've done like Hammer (5.8) or Mother #1

I was ready for battle on this one. What an awesome looking line when you first see it from a distance, and intimidating. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be thanks to some crimps and other holds. A definite classic! - and my first 5.10 offwidth. Now I gotta get on left torpedo tube - yikes!
