Langston onsighting Tulip Crack.

Description 

This is undeniably one of the best boulder problems in Vedauwoo, and I think one of the best anywhere. It's a perfect right leaning splitter that goes from stacks to finger tips, with a nice tricky jug up top. The rock is really fine grained, some of the best granite at Vedauwoo. It also has a V6 variation, The Bush Eater, put up by Jeremy Medley, that starts on the right on a hand jam. You reach up to the big obvious patina flake and move left into the crack. Very cool. Both versions move really neat, and both are must do problems.


Location 

Park as for Fingorilla. Walk down the road for a couple hundred feet and head up to the boulders on the left. It's on one of the first boulders and faces east.


Protection 

Pads, skill. The crux is at the bottom for the regular, and going for and getting into the crack on The Bush Eater.
