AAI alpine guide Kevin McGarity @fallonoffmtns working his offwidth moves while sporting some eye-popping crag-wear on Split Beaver (5.10b) in the Smoke Bluffs, Squamish, BC. "I thought offwidth was just a phase in my climbing, turns out I truly enjoy the wide stuff." Thank you to @jackaugustine for the sweet action photos. • Of all the skills climbers need to master before they can become truly proficient in the mountains, offwidth crack climbing might be the most arcane. For those not in the know: an "off-width" crack is a crack too large to jam your hand in securely (that would be a "hand crack"), and too small to fit your whole body into with room to move (that would be a "chimney"). Tackling an offwidth shares more in common with perfecting a hard yoga pose than it does with face technique and ordinary crack climbing. Swap "scorpion" for "chicken-wing" or "fist-stack" and you've got the idea. Offwidths reward patience, focus, pain-tolerance, and the ability to quiet your mind and listen to your body's feedback as you fine-tune the solution. A single "move" might gain you two inches of progress. The demands are so different from those of "normal" climbing that it's not unusual for 5.11 leaders to quake at a 5.8 offwidth. • But the payoff for learning these techniques is great. Many outstanding longer climbs contain a pitch of offwidth that bars the path like a dragon, or like a sentry who asks for the secret handshake. Once mastered, offwidths open doors in the mountains more than any other single skillset. • • • • • • • • #offwidth #stawamuschief #tradisrad #pebblewrestling #rocktober #amga1979 #squamishbc #seatosky #wideboyz #offwidtharmy #discoverbc #climbon #clymblife #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #liveclimbrepeat #climbingphotography #alpineclimbing #goatworthy #ourpnw #aacgram #mecnation #mazamas #vitalclimbinggym #optoutside #crackclimbing #tradclimbing #climbingmountains #rockclimbing #spiritofalpinism

This weekend I went on the best adventure! I saw snow for the first time, swam, played fetch, went hiking, and camped with some of my best buddies... what more could a pup need? 🌊✨🐶 • • • • • #Ziggy #ziggystardust #goldenretriever #golden #goldenretrieverpuppy #whitewaterpreserve #adventure #explore #optoutside #campingwithdogs #river #desert #hikingwithdogs #livelifeoffleash #palmsprings #pupper #dogsofinstagram #dog #goldensofinstagram #johnmuir #hike #wanderlust #puppy #bestfriend #sundayfunday #adventuredog #traildog #doggo

Took a ferry to the island to hike. Everybody went to the trail on the right, I went to the left. Not a bad decision 👌🏽🙃 #letshandstand
