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...

It has been a very long time since I did this route in 1989. I seem to remember 5 bolts. Are there only 4? After the tricky crux start I remember a .10d /11a run-out section past 3rd (?) bolt to reach a ledge. I also remember a 5.12 second crux finish past the last two bolts.

The climb was originally rated .12c. Skinner & Piana freed the Salathe Wall in 1988 (not 1989). May 20, 2017

Skinner worked on this problem just a month after the Salathe route in Yosemite was freed (Sept. [1988]). He still had broken ribs from an accident upon that project's completion. Piana and Heidi Barcardaro also contributed to this Vedauwoo project. Mar 26, 2007

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. May 24, 2004
