Creation of the World at Moss Cliff is supposed to have some wide action. Ben

Adks aren't exactly known for wide, but there is some to be found. There is a 5.10+ OW on the right side of the Spider's Web that looks very long and splitter. I haven't been on it, and don't remember the name, but it would be a good route to check out alongside the rest of the non-OW cracks at the Web.

If you really want to man up, Creation of the World at Moss Cliff is the local OW testpiece. ~4 pitches long, some runout sections, and a lot of wide. Way-full-value 5.11.

Another great long route with a lot of wide is No Man's A Pilot on Wallface. Remote, wild, and rarely done, it branches off of the much-more-popular Diagonal. Steep squeeze chimneys. If I remember correctly, you can get away without much (or any?...not sure) wide gear, thanks to additional (smaller) cracks that take gear. I did it in mid-November, and one of the squeeze chimneys was totally covered in verglas. Spicy!

Fear of Flying at Moss is also a wide one. The wide one at the Web is Eternity Crack. Will Roth

Check out Route Of Oppressive Power at High Falls Cliff, Fear Of Flying (Moss Cliff) and Eternity (Spiders Web). No Man's A Pilot is awesome. Never done Creation Of The World but it sounds tremendous. MaxSuffering
