Definately an off-width gab but actually works quite well being smaller too. Doesn't just need big hands as the guide book states. About half way up where seems v. little for feat save for smearing/edging above the grade there is a brilliant hidden hand hold right inside the crack (for right hand positioned so thumb down knuckles left fingers pointing right), made whole thing feel much easier.

This was a fantastic climb with an epic view... A good selection of hex's is a must due to the size of the cracks.
