Description

This is one of the best lines on the cliff. Locate the nice handcrack on the left side of the cliff, between two bolted lines, just right of the large JuniorvelociRaptor boulder and chimney of Prologue (5.6). It is a nice climb with solid jams.

Protection

Standard rack up to 3". Extras in hand sizes.

Did this one today. Excellent route! I would give it four stars if it was longer. My wife and I both did the start differently - she jammed to the flake whereas I was able to drop to the flake using the face holds - and we both agreed that the bulge toward the top was the crux of the route. All-in-all pretty straightforward (no harder than 5.8) with good pro throughout. Jul 4, 2007

I agree that the crux is at the beginning. I climbed it yesterday and I don't think it's any harder than 5.8. I heard that Zack's book rated it a 9. This is rediculous. It is tough, but it's not a tough Vedauwoo climb.This is one of my favorites! Apr 24, 2005

Short but fun. The jams are not sustained throughout the whole pitch as Heel and Toe states, but becomes a wide crack in between two solid hand cracks. Mar 25, 2004
I don't really think that the first part is harder than 5.8. Just think about it before you go and look for the numerous face holds for your feet and hands for the first two moves or so. Great climb. Sep 29, 2003

 
Great route! - watch the hand (up to your elbow) jam at the top - it will scar you for life - unless you tape up your entire arm! Aug 28, 2002

The start is typical Vedauwoo - much harder than 5.8 for the first 6 feet or so. Jun 20, 2002
