This is an easier friction climb that goes up the left side of a huge rock (sorta clam shell like) that leans against the Fall Wall. Jump across from a boulder and cruise to the top.
To set a top rope, scramble from the right to the start of E.O. Friction
and E.O. Lieback
. Move to the left side of the huge, leaning rock, drop a rope (60m was plenty), and rap to the start.
Per Mark Roth
: 2 bolts and an anchor, now.
Per J Marsella
: there are now four shiny Metolius hangers (11/1/14) and a pair of double-ring rap anchors.

Great intro to Vedauwoo rock. Friction/slab technique all the way up. Take your time, and enjoy the climb. Look for small quarts nuggets or bowls to advance. No crux. Bring 4 draws and two-anchor setup. Can be completed with 50m rope. Enjoy!
