How wide? Offwidth? Chimney? Just a fist?
How best? Consistent? Varied? Hand jambing numbness? Cruisy shoulder rests every few ms?

Most painful gut wrenching, hardest off width classics out there.

South side of Buffalo gorge. First grade 24 in the state, or country, I forget. The 2nd pitch is a good sized off width through a roof then up the head wall.

The other that springs to mind is Loose Fit at the devils couch. Cacophonic Crack at the disabled lookout would be a good warm up, I guess.

This forum needs pics to get the info out there. Cacophonic Crack looks like nice hand crack.

Any more?

Cacophonic crack starts small and gets wider and wider untill it's 6 camalot territory near the top.

Do you have an aversion to reading?

Some shots of Cacophonic.
Monarch is a better route.

Would hate to know how long that pitch took, poor belayer.

I have a question: if the crack is that big that you can use a big bro and it looks a bit slabby, would you actually be able to fall?

Edit (for phone auto correct induced typo)

The climb is solid though the top is very loose; I'd call it character building and fun;)
