Description 

To the left of Horizontal Departure is a very clean cut, vertical, off-width crack. Climb the off-width to a good belay stance beneath a chimney. A very good climb that requires actual off-width technique.

Descent: Climb out of the chimney above the route, scramble down and west through some large talus. A gully leads out to the left (back east) where you can go under a large chockstone and do some 4th class downclimbing and then back to the base of the route.


Protection 

Single Rack to 5 inches. A #6 BD Camalot is useful.
