Nate past the crux. Can't tell from the pic, but ...
This short gem is truly made to sandbag your visiting friends. It is a line that captures the essence of Vedauwoo: short enough that you might want to try to solo, but hard enough that you shouldn't. If you have gone to Master Blaster or walked past the area then you have probably seen it and thought that it was a cool looking line. From the main trail going to Lichen Lung area or Valley Massif, look right immediately after getting out of the woods (Aspens) and you should see it. The line is a gently overhanging hand and finger crack with a wide bulge at the top and it is on a boulder. Once you are on it you will see how the name is fitting. It looks like it should be .10a.
It's short, so you won't need much, but it will take gear from 0.5" to 4". You need to set up an anchor at the top.
