This was the first wide crack Ive ever lead (in the desert or any where)....was planning to get trampled and beaten down...but wow if you do this rig you will be SOOO StOKED! fun thin hand jams warm up to tight squeeze..or you can find face holds on top o buldge and crank over roof. finish in ever steepening OW. 2 options for the top finish in the wide or jet right onto god send jug and heading up face with good holds. Just dont blow it if you head right. 2 #6 c4 would have been handy

Crazy heel hook beta for the bigger guy @ the roof. Skinny knees made upper section pretty strenuous.

4 out of 5 stars Hilarious

You should only try this route if you're reasonably thin. My partner and I have 32" waists and it was a pinch. If you got stuck in there you'd be an unhappy camper. You could probably climb around the squeeze. Guidebook says 5.11, but that seems pretty featherbagged.
