This route is located on Nautilus' "backside", just left of Ted's Trot and 40 feet right of Hairlip. This worthwhile route starts out as a wide layback, rounds a corner to a no hands bivy, and then gets down to business.

Good hand jams with interesting footwork take you to the big pod, which is better than it looks. Get good gear in and then do the crux. By this time, I was experiencing the route's namesake. But I seem to breath this hard on most Vedawoo routes.


Small assortment of nuts and cams from 3/4" to #5 Camalot. Multiples for hands. Chain anchor.
