+1 for Certain Death -

Cashmere is brutal.

I haven't tried it but On the Waterfront is considered OW.

The 2nd pitch of Crescent - more of a squeeze.

We'll have to get out before it's too snowy Tyler!

The route in it's entirety.

chimney variation to the 3rd pitch of schoolroom. when combined with the lower portion it's like 40m of wide. groove/chimney pitches on the thumb.

Me in the Black Canyon.  Checking out a stopper.

I don't do any OW on On the Waterfront.

Goodro's Nightmare is a fun one and that takes up up to the 3rd pitch of the Green A. Great way to get up high in an area where you would regularly crag.

Mega points for going over and getting on Regge Pole in Bells.

I need to go play around on Razz-a-mat-azz again before winter sets in.

I feel like I have dragged big cams all over LCC but I can't think of many more right now...

Second ascent.

Went and did certain death today, it's a full value climb!!! On the waterfront is a great intro to inverts, and razzmatazz is right next to it for a warm up.
If your looking to take on all of the LCC offwidths I'd love to team up with you.

Cashmere is so hard. I can't believe Spencer Weiler put down 9+ on that thing...hahah fuckin sandbagger.

I totally forgot about Creep Show. That one is fun.

Beth Anne's Crack is a blast. And if you go all the way up there, you might as well tick off Mission to Moscow as well.

Bring pants.

I was up there a few years ago with Burr and Sam Burrell. We came back down after the crux pitches so as to avoid the top gritty choss pitch. I feel like I have head from some other that may have been on it.

Robbins crack. Haven't done it. Dragging huge cams up the thumb should be fun though.

+1 Burner. This is the real deal. I hiked up there and found I couldn't do a single free move, it made a fine aid climb however.

Plasma. Recently climbed this one offwidth style. About 2 body lengths of intense thrutching. Later I was told that only fools don't layback it. This is probably true, but the pointy trees below drove me into the gape.

I recommend heading down to the creek if you're serious about practicing OW. Nobody really likes offwidths anyway though. Get on a few and it's easy to see why. But it is kinda fun going back to work after a weekend of OW looking like you've been in fight club or something.

Were you up there last Sunday? Should have done the unprotected chundercling start to the right :)

edit: surprised Zac didn't mention Gravity's Rainbow P1. Short and burly (for me) and not too far past the Waterfront if you're hauling big cams in the area.

I've always wanted to provide some community service by cleaning out that OW to the right of plumbline "Filthy Garbage". Anyone ever do that?

Short of soaking it in gasoline and burning the 6"+ diameter scrub oaks growing in there I think it's hopeless... It would occupy a rainy afternoon though!

I have been eyeing that one up and thinking about cleaning it up myself. Let's go do it!
