Description 

big long offwidth crack, that gets bulgy and dirty near the top. some real nice sit down rests near the top. finishes out with some face climbing. took me a while to figure out offwidth moves, but it was fun figuring it out. might want to wear pants and tape ankles or wear high top shoes (i've lost some skin to this one). i've only top roped this route using several trees at the top for anchors.

Location 

on the left wall of the dihedral, to the left of "Cave City"

Protection 

I top roped it using long pieces of webbing to anchor to the trees at the top. to lead a person would need several large cams for the offwidth.
