If you like off-width, then this route is for you. The crack opens to fists, arcs left and joins "Black-Jones Direct". Bulge your biceps... 'cuz it's a grunt.
The ominous looking crack just left of the first pitch of Durrance.

If you're just doing the first pitch, it really isn't an offwidth, but mostly cupped hands and fists. Bring several #3 camalots and a #4. Fun climbing, with some flaky rock typical of this zone on the Tower. You can rap/TR this pitch with a single 70m if you watch the ends and scramble up off the big belay ledge a bit (easy).
