Look for an obvious, left-facing corner a few yards west of Marginal Line. Straightforward chimney/laybacking with good face holds leads to more strenuous offwidthing. There are some helpful holds on the arete about midway if you want to turn around in the crack, but you can also just thrash on through with your right side in until you get to a nice fist-size crack. One more 5.9 move gets you over a fun roof to a friendly, finger crack leading up and left. This makes for a more interesting start to Romulan Territory than Marginal Line, less technical but far more sustained.


Up to the #4 Camalot with doubles above the #2 for comfort

WOW!!! All you 5.9 hardmen saddle up for this, and prove your worth at the 5.9 grade. A must for the Lumpy Offwidth circuit. While your there and you have the big gear, be sure to check out the Penis Chimney to round out some wide 5.9 cragging. The gear is bomber throughout, but save some finger size cams or nuts and a few draws for the top out crack over the roof.

This rating seems to be pretty in-line with Vedauwoo ratings at 5.9. Don't expect a soft grade on this one.

Definitely a quality route, reminds me a little of Slim Pickins on Sundance and back scum on P4 of Eldo's N Edge. Like it says in comment Guideline #1 Don't be a jerk (and do this route).
