A wonderful off-width crack, this route is easily top roped and not easily lead ;)

4 out of 5 stars heel-toe

chicken wing and more heel-toe. Classic wide crack climbing. Used 1 each #4,5 and 6 plus tri cams and small - medium TCUs.
Good idea to wear socks or tape the left ankle bones :)

3 out of 5 stars take big gear!

Ran this thing out 50 feet (really more like 80 feet past my last good piece). I went up with a #4 and belief that there would be small horizontals for gear - the horizontals that did appear were crap. Would be fun with a #5 or two. Could be G but was very X for me! Pretty stiff 5.7.

Mike Tucker risked his life to lead this shit. He placed 3 pieces of gear on the whole 80 ft crack. I toproped after him.
