A clean, very shallow offwidth leads to a thin hands crack above. This is a good place to practice heel-toe jams.

standard rack - the offwidth has a thin crack in the back that you can place protection in

This would be a good first wide crack. You could probably protect it reasonably well without big gear, and it actually requires some wide technique to climb. The finishing tight hand crack is fun too.

I thought this felt a lot easier than 5.5, but I enjoy wide, akward cracks! Although big gear looks good for the bottom section, I found small placemnts to be bomber. The upper hand crack section was also a lot of fun!

Did this climb in 1986, and felt that it was graded fairly at 5.5 in comparison to other climbs in the area. Worth doing as either a warm up introduction to Joshua Tree rock, or for teaching beginners. Will do again next time in JTree.

Second that on the thin pro. I brought fat stuff, but the OW was too wide for any of it! Instead, I used my smaller cams on a thin crack in the back.
