Description 

Find Desiderata and walk Southbound along the base of the Old Easy formation for less than 100 yards. You will encounter a large pine tree next to a prominent alcove. This southeast facing crack overhangs about thirty degrees, and can be done from a stand using perfect hands, or done for full value by sit starting on fingers/tight hands.


Protection 

A pad or two, along with a spotter is nice. The landing is flat, but hard.

Scarpelli was the first one to find and do this one, probably more than a decade ago. This is a very pretty and worthwhile line.

Remarkable, a little sharp, but that's Vedauwoo. I have to say that if you have larger hands the stand start is really tight hands, and down low sitting is more like flared, off-fingers. From the stand or the sit, this is a fun crack. Not the absolute best, but close.
