Another Vedauwoo crag that is secluded yet has some classic lines of all types. Most of the routes here are short, sweet, and fat. Throw in a couple face routes and some FAs yet untouched (or probably done many times by Scarpelli) and you have plenty of fun for a day.

Getting There 

Short Wall is located about 200 yards Northeast of Citadel Crag. Stay along the trail through a meadow or cut through an aspen grove to access the lower tier. The routes on the lower tier are on the southwest side of the crag. The upper tier can best be approached by scrambling up the east side.

Misfits 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  WY : Vedauwoo : Short Wall
This climb is on the Short Wall, which is just to the East and a little South from Plumb Line. It is short, but offers excellent thin-hand jams to a wild, overhanging finish where you need the #4 Camalot. The last few moves are the crux.Per Brian Weinstein: A pretty corner that starts at fingers and thin hands until you encounter the roof. Pulling the roof is the crux.Eds.
