What is Offwidth Climbing?
Offwidth climbing is defined by the fact that the climb doesn't match normal body sizes. Offwidth cracks are larger than your fist, but small enough that you can't fit your entire body inside. You won't find normal hand and finger cracks on most offwidth climbs. Instead, climbers have to resort to offwidth techniques like double stacking hands, chicken wings, shoving hips and shoulders into chimneys and generally inching up the rock by trying to fit whatever weird assortment of body parts will let you cling to the rock.
