Description [Suggest Change]
It gets better each time I climb it, a definite sign of a Vedauwoo Classic. Essentially the last route left (facing the rock) accessed from the top of the Clam Shell, it begins with an unprotected 30' traverse to a flake/pocket where a shakey #3 Camalot can be placed. Then its up thin edges past three bolts. The concensus is the crux comes after the 3rd bolt - before placing a #1 Camalot in an undercling/crack. Mount the small overhang using crystals and belat at the chains. NOTE: You have a choice of second pitches that begin near the belay if you choose. See the guidebook or vedauwoo.org for details.

It's a mixed climb, three bolts plus at least 2 cam placements. Take 3 QDs, a #1 and #3 Camalot plus whatever you'll need at the 2 bolt and chain anchor at the top. A 60m rope is recommended, especially for the rap off.
