The slipery crux is the opening stuff. The difficulty ends pretty much after you hit the ledge above your head. The offwidth looks really hard but ends up being the easy part (I guess depending on how you do it). A fun crack overall though.

I really enjoyed this route. The bottom is tricky because it's slippery and the crack seems to be leaning the wrong way. Super solid gear the whole way. I placed everything from a medium nut to a #6 Camalot. You can place anything pretty much anywhere. You could do it all with a set of nuts if you wanted to... The offwidth is pretty tame. There are face holds everywhere, or you can do an easy arm bar.
