DescriptionThis is sweet if you like torturous Vedauwoo routes. It is located near the center of the crag, an obvious small left facing dihedral split by two shelfs. Just right of Slot-a-saurus and left of Mud in Your Eye.
Stiff right off of the ground through a series of thin and somewhat slick hand jams. A deceptively tough entry into a shoulder width slot is likely to leave you gasping. Once inside the slot, recover a bit, stand on the shelf and tackle the next little puzzle, a seemingly holdless entry into another bodysized slot. The slot shortly dumps you onto another ledge with one final (but easier) puzzling body sized slot to enter.
Horizontal cracks on the left at the top provide a good place to set up an top rope anchor (a cordelette is nice), or set up anchor from various cracks and blocks further back to bring up the second. Very close to three stars, the only reason I could find to justify its omission from that category is the duration of the crux(s) and length of the climb. Still a must do route, and a tough and committing lead (partner said that its higher rated neighbor to the right would be an easier lead).
