Parade Rest is a decent route, worth trying if you are in the area with one caveat.... Do you enjoy the Vedauwoo 'thrutch'? If you are among this group, the climb is for you. PR is among the lines at Vedauwoo that appear easy from a glance. Climb off of the initial flake into the right facing offwidth start. After gaining a shelf, surmount the upper handcrack.
Rack up to at least 4 inches.

I really didn't think this was THAT thrutchy, but maybe I'm among the group Jesse was talking about.... Anyway, the offwidth section requires big gear but not much offwidth technique, as I could get fists and hands in the back and a big facehold saves the day after not too long. The handcrack is strenuous and definitely the crux and, despite appearances from the ground, is actually very thin hands for most of the way (for average-sized hands) - #1 Camalots with a #2 later on. Fun route.
