At the crux of Uncle Steve's Horrible Offwidth
The route starts at the base of an obvious wide crack in an inside corner ten feet to the right of "Baby Come Home". Use stemming, lie-backs, chimney, and offwidth techniques to ascend about 60 feet up the crack until you reach the ledge below the roof near the top of the wall. Traverse left about five feet around the roof (crux) then up five feet to the bolted anchors.
Trad gear: Medium stoppers, Camalots .75, 4, 5, possibly 6. A #9 Valley Giant comes in handy in the top section of the crack. Bolted anchors.
