Description

This is perhaps the cleanest, prettiest line on the cliff, and is located just right of Lichen Lung. It is stiffest right of the ground through slippery finger locks and layaways. The crack gradually widens from fingers, thin hands to solid hands before becoming a little flared at a shelf. Rest here before punching through the last section of flared hands to fists.

Protection

Standard rack up to 3". Doubles of #0.75, #1, and #2 Camalots are nice.

The bolts on this route are still in fine working order. Great route and a must do in climbing in the area. Jun 16, 2013

As of 8/16/09, the bolts at the top of the route are in fine working order. They aren't rap bolts though, and there are no quick links. We walked over to the left and rapped of just one of the two bolts on top of Lichen Lung as only one of those had a quick link. This worked just fine, but this area would be a lot nicer if someone brought up 7 or so quick links sometime (4 for Mud, 3 more for Lichen). Aug 16, 2009
Thanks Eldofiend! Maybe we can discuss the intricies of technical rock climbing when I arrive. You can show me how to use those gears that you clip your rope to. Please pm me! Jul 6, 2009

Lots of wiggling bolts at Vedauwoo. I'd stay away. Jul 2, 2009
Does anyone know if this "wiggling" bolt issue has been dealt with? Is the climb safe? I am planning to come out in August, and I don't want this to ruin my trip. Jul 1, 2009

A must-do if you're in this area. Soft for the grade. If you're looking to on-sight .11b at the 'Voo, this is probably the one. Apr 18, 2005

The flare at the top is safely protected with normal Camalots. It's not quite as hard as its neighbor, Lichen Lung. Apr 27, 2004
This is one of the best lines in Vedauwoo. It is also rated on the easy side. The crux is right at the beginning and reminescent of the opening to Friday the 13th. The top is flared and difficult to protect, but very secure. It is really no problem to just run it to the top if you are confident in your skills. Sep 3, 2003
Large offset Friends help well in flared groove, regular cams stick out like fishing lures! Aug 28, 2003
