This route is the gem of the Upper Blair area and one of the best at Vedauwoo. Park at the end of FR 705AF. Spectreman Buttress is on the south east end of The Heap, which is the farthest north formation in Upper Blair. Follow faint trails from the parking area around either the north or south sides of the Heap to the far end. You can't miss the route. It is at the top of a huge slab with clear views in the opposite direction of the back side of Central Vedauwoo.

The route is straightforward, 70 feet of hard, overhanging jamming with some ok stemming, but few rests. You can set gear anywhere you want to and there are good anchors at the top. The anchors are equipped with Mussy Hooks. Have fun!!!


Camalot sizes 1 #0.5, 1 #0.75, 3 #1, 4 #2, 1 #3, this may be overkill, but I set a lot of gear. Use the #3 at the bottom and save one # 2 for the top.
