At the anchors of E.O. Friction. E.O. Leiback cli...
This is just an easy introduction to slab climbing. It is a good warm up for some of the neighboring routes. Just don't blow that first clip.
This route has three bolts on it. It's a rather long trip to the first bolt but the climbing is very easy. This route shares the bolt anchor with E.O. Lieback.
Enjoying some fun, easy slab.

Fun route and well protected. The "crux" is getting to the first two bolts, then it's very easy the rest of the way to the anchors. To me the first 15 feet felt like 5.6 climbing, while the top half of the route was much easier. A fun, but short, climb.

This route is a very nice introduction to Vedauwoo friction climbing, but the first 15 feet to the first bolt are why I gave this a 5.6 PG rating. Once the first clip is in place, the difficulty also eases. Initially climbed in Terray mountaineering boots! Over the years, I've done this 20+ times.
