No beta spray here. Just a big offwidth/ squeeze chimney on clean rock that beckons to be climbed. Stand start on the microwave sized blocs in the back of the crack. Traverse out the crack to the jug and pull the lip.
Immediately right of the PROW. Stand start on the two blocks in the back of the offwidth.

Unless you are a jam crack master, I would recommend taping.

Every time I return to the area... I feel the need to
go climb this again, and again! Awesome problem!

Anyone who can complete this problem is certifiably tough.

Definitly a funky problem and definitly a four star classic in my book! Ive never taped for it, but it could be worth it to tape up due to the grittyness of the stone for sure. I think tough pants are nice, not necessary though. Even with jeans Ive walked away with raw cherries (scrapes, etc) on my knees that were burning for days and took a long time to heal.
the offwidth/chimney beginning is REALLY fun and unique for the area and after pulling the lip (crux for me) its straight forward. If youre in the area and youre looking for something all engaging, different (chimney and offwidth technique at Gretna!), yet quality climbing, this is a great problem to do!
Next time Im there if there are no pictures on this web site Ill take and add some. They could make finding this problem alot easier (if you dont know the area I could see passing this problem up by not seeing/recognizing it).
