I've done Low Cholesterol and Way Nutter. I'm looking for a couple more easier intros to wide climbing. I prefer the shorter ones because they are slightly less time and gear committing.

Any suggestions?

Get on "Big Guy," it's a really awesome OW climb. I climbed it last weekend and not being an offwidth climber had a lot of fun and learned some things. Take a .75 and #1 for the start, the meat of the climb is the #4 section, a #6 is unecessary and way over cammed at the top. Have fun! Ryan Kempf

Big Guy is a good one - you will learn something! Budget for an epic hour+ lead, best not benighted on the send. I like having the 6 up top.

Frosted Flakes on the sunny side of Res Wall is amazing! It will teach you the off-fist size well.

Serrator crack is easy at its 5.11- with a low crux, but a good freaky runout offwidth/squeeze up top. A proud send!

Root canal at Broken Tooth.

My favorite climb at the creek with an off-width is Curiosity at Cat Wall. A perfect pitch of climbing!

Curiosity is super fun!
Desire is pretty "easy"
Big Guy is awesome, but I wouldn't say easy
