I am currently en route flying back to the southeast after a summer of climbing in The Valley, and I am going to be missing the plethora of wide cracks that were at my disposal. So I am looking for all of the wide cracks in the area, anything like Ahab, Generator, Moby Dick, etc... Thanks in advance. wpfister

Not really our specialty here in NC, but there is a pretty good list in this thread: mountainproject.com/v/training... Brian Payst

If you get desperate there are actually quite a few unnamed/unclimbed offwidths/chimneys at Moore's. Can't speak to the quality of them but they are littered all over the crag. Most likely nothing like Yosemite though... ABG

Hey TJ! I am moving overseas late September, but am looking to get out a good bit until that point. I will shoot you a text.
And thanks everyone for the recommendations.

Top pitch of cracker jack at table rock is kinda a short offwidth into a full chimney climb. White lightning might not be exactly what you are looking for but is also at table rock and might be worth the while. ViperScale

Tried to hit up as many chimney/wide cracks we could before climbing Epi at RR back in the spring:

Fruit Loops 2nd Pitch - Rumbling Bald
Cracker Jack 2nd Pitch - Table Rock
Fat Dog - Looking Glass
Caterpillar - Crowders

Never made it to LG north side to bag those wide ones. In the end it was good enough for us to make it through the Epi chimneys.

If you are feeling burly, P6 of Glass Menagerie is the "dreaded off-width" pitch. gregrockz

As fall/winter rolls in, Captain Crunch, Petrified Frog, and Kennedy Space Port at Rumbling Bald area all good options. Also, Pepper Pot Tube on the Looking Glass Hidden Wall. Derek DeBruin

2nd pitch of Odyssey. It was quite nice, but bring a few large cams, or leap-frog one cam like I did. That adds lots of spice to the lead! Steve Ritchie

The off width on Fire Fly on Raven Rock is probably the longest and hardest. As far as I know it has not seen a second ascent.40 to 50 feet of pure granite off width climbing with bomb bay exposure! Free the roof pitch and turn the three pitch climb into one wild and exposed masterpiece. shannon stegg
