my elbows are still raw from last weekend at muscle beach. Climbing offwidth is like trying to inseminate two cows at once. Here's the checklist:
raw elbows? check.
raw ankles? check.
raw knees? check.
hair ripped off wrists from tape? check, check.
dirt in ears? check.
dead tree rappel? check.

Off width? Add to your checklist... all leather chaps or pants/check. Long sleeve shirt, preferably of leather too/check. Full ankle covering high top shoes/check. Half a dozen rolls of tape applied at various locations as needed/check. A brain bucket on the head/ check! Kneepads and maybe elbow pads/ check. Tincture of iodine, quart size bottle please. Anyway, that's my Veedauvoo check list for painful crystals and off widths.

So- since inquiring minds want to know, this thing is out at Lost Ridge. Somewhere halfway between quality crack and wide pride. Sure does look sweet but the thing is f'n huge! Its at least as wide as shoals- super steep and pretty long- would probably take a whole slew of 6 friends and bros to protect. It'd be crazy to see someone climb it.

It was just too wide to be cool. Kind of like one of those you felt like you could just chimney up through instead of climbing out the roof.
