Description 

Situated in front of Fall Wall is this amorphic shaped boulder with an incredible sport route up its west face...Stick clip the eye-bolt and figure out how to do the wild, bouldery moves over those way cool knobs (crux). Weave your way past ring bolts and nipple-pinch up interesting terrain to these big horns and the anchor (11b/c and a wee bit sporty). Don't blow the last move!!! Don't even think of doing this line in the afternoon sun...

4 QD's, Stick-Clip

FA was Piana. Early 90s. Someone really needs to replace the ring pins with actual bolts on this thing. Otherwise a very cool route with bizarre moves getting past the first big crystal/zit things.

Skinner worked on this problem just a month after the Salathe route in Yosemite was freed(Sept 1989). He still had broken ribs from an accident upon that projects completion. Piana and Heidi Barcardaro also contributed to this Vedauwoo project.
