BETA PHOTO: no answer 5.8 off width crack where rope is hangin...


So the old guide book gives this 5.6+... I would feel like a bad person calling it that since i can run laps on .9s and .10s and this one gives me trouble... Feel free to give your vote if you think its a walk...

Anyway, climb the hand crack leading up to the off-width above... That is the hard part... I found that grunting was helpful...


A few feet right of Obscene Phone Call (5.8) there is an Off Width crack... Um... thats the route...


Bring a big OW cam if you lead it...

I don't know if you need the big gun for the lead, but I agree that this and OPC are both way .7+ or .8

#6 protects it beautifully, but there's also a smaller crack at the back that takes 0.3 to 0.4 -- I think it would be safe enough.
