An old line with some recent updates, Wide Cracks original line begins up easy, run-out terrain to a corner where some protection is available. It continues up a dihedral/corner until it gains a small notch. From here the line cuts left following a "sulcus" in the brain-shaped bulge and climbs to the top of the buttress over easier terrain. At the summit, build an anchor, then down-climb to the north or rap from Stretch Marks.

A route for someone looking to tick old lines, its ok, but nothing to write home about. Expect minimal protection over relatively easy terrain.

Gear up to three inches, slings, and a cordelette.
