Offwidth in Vedauwoo

The World of Offwidth

The offwidth climbing in Vedauwoo course will help you become a better and more well-rounded climber. Offwidth cracks are too narrow to fit your whole body in and too wide to use standard crack climbing techniques.  Since the cracks are unique in size the climbing can be known as awkward.  Don’t let this size of crack intimidate you. This two day course, in the offwidth capital of the world, will teach you basic and advanced offwidth techniques that will have you cruising wide cracks in style.
