BETA PHOTO: South OW -- it's the wide crack in the center of t...
The route is located through the brush about 100 feet south of the roof route area. It's a prominent hand crack start followed by a short offwidth and tops out on a blocky face. Start with the nice hand crack (5.7+) for 15 feet to the offwidth. Enter the offwidth and grunt through (crux) whereupon climbing eases towards the top.
Note that a TR can also be set from above.
A nice and quick intro to hand cracks and offwidths.
Hand and offwidth size protection. 1 small set of stoppers/tri-cams for the upper section and anchor.
When everything at Duncan's is taken, rest assured this one is open. This is IMHO the best route at Duncans. Depending on the time of year there can be varying amounts of poo poo at the beginning of the crux. A big piece (i.e., #5 Camalot) will add some piece of mind, however some hardmen do it with nothing bigger than a #3 Camalot.
