βeta: Yeah, this should start up the big offwidth and then finish up the wide crack directly above it according to the BMC guide. If you climb the wall as described here and then the right hand hanging crack on the wall it is Arctic Nose, Severe.

SuperLee1985 25 Feb, 2018 2nd O/S Offwidth part was a lot easier than it looked. Although my thigh was a little fat for the leg jam. Upper section was trickier, felt like 4c, high foot hampered by lack of flexibility from winter trousers. Thugged it instead of using technique. Pretty pumpy.
