If climbed in one pitch to the top of the formation, this route is probably one of the longest in Vedauwoo/Blair. It has varied climbing, great exposure for parts of the climb, absolutely all-around fun. It is highly recommended.


This is on the northwest face of Blair III. It is left of Intimidation.


There's a bolt that protects the crux, which appears where the crack shuts down into a crackless seam.

Otherwise, this route takes gear. There are no chains nor hangers at the top, nor midway up the route where a potential first anchor/toprope anchor could be. So plan accordingly. Natural anchor on top takes any combo of #0.75, 1, 2, and 3 Cams PLUS a lot of cord/webbing to reach the lip of the formation.

One of the best climbs in Vedauwoo. Someone put a rap station 2/3 of the way up at an obvious ledge. Not sure about the very top.
