This thing is short (not 50 feet, more like 35), but it is one of the best cracks at Vedauwoo. It's a perfect flared splitter, and a great one for learning how to jam thin flared overhanging cracks. This is a must do on the hard crack tour of Vedauwoo.
Personally I would drop the #1 Camalots, I'm not so sure they will fit. A .5 Friend is useful at the very bottom, then doubles of 1.25 and 1.5 Friends will sew it up.

|A worthy note regarding the grade of this route is it was originally done without sticky rubber using by today's standards clunky toed shoes. This is likely why this feels relatively soft compared to hand/fist cracks and OWs at the same grade at Vedauwoo by today's standards.|

|Very high quality route though short. It packs quite a punch. Very much worth the hike. There is a shorter hike, but I will keep it a secret for now....|
