On the NW side of the NW Blair formation; from the lower parking area, hold left to the near end of the leftmost large formation. Intimidation begins just right of an unnamed bolted seam (project); it is a mossy fingercrack & slot leading to an obvious, right-leaning handcrack. Jeez, this is fun ... wonder why it's called Intimidation? Oh -- the handcrack ends, leaving you below the first of two bulging, overhanging, bomb-bay squeeze chimneys. They aren't as hard as they look (& great fun, too). Gear belay; walk off right.

This is a fun, long (rope streatcher to TR with a 60), full-body climb. Seems like a good introduction to offwidth as there are sections of beautiful handcrack. Really fun climbing.
