Description

And now, the final exam to Intro to Wide Cracks 101: after Easy Jam, Baldwin's Chimney, Right Parallel Space, Piton Perch, Slit, Handjacker, and Candlestick, it is now time to do one of the area classics of the grade, the Slots.

Beware of any climb at Vedauwoo named Slot (here are 2). These were (and still are) sandbags for the grade, but the confidence gained of experience will work in your favor. Body position, proper and rhythmical movement, foot and leg position, and confidence will all serve you well here.

From the parking lot, head left around the crag. Just left and around the corner from the Stand and Deliver Boulder are a series of overhanging wide cracks. Lower Slot takes...the lower one, and leads to a classic, leaning OW (Upper Slot). What else can I say at this point but: Go For IT.

Protection

Big stuff.
