Aside from Silver Platter, Captain Crunch and the few unknown named chimney/offwidths near cereal buttress, are there any other offwidth routes around the bald? Boulders or trad?
Thanks!
Will

One that I know of is Kennedy Space Port at Test Pilots. Its a run little offwidth roof.

There aren't many real offwidths at rumbly. There are some real ones in the gorge though
, however they're off limits right now.

There's the 10a near shredded wheat - it has a bolt.

Another, non-offwidth is hickory nutcracker. It's more like a really tight squeeze chimney than an offwidth, but it's at least of the same adventure style of climbing anyway.

Leading on the only "fair means" rack.
Why are they off limits?

cliff closure due to fire is the immediate cause and bird nesting the regular cause

T, I was referring to Hickory Nut Gorge, not the one burning right now. But there are a couple of wideish cracks there too.
