Description

This is the obvious offwidth on the south side of Worm Drive proper. It goes up a slot for about ten feet then over a three or four foot roof, going to easier vertical terrain after that. The name gives some hint to the beta. This is a must do classic for anyone seeking out Vedauwoos hard offwidths.

Location

This is on the south side of Worm Drive, to the left of the big obvious chimney. There is a good 5.9 warmup two cracks to the right of it with bolts on top.

Protection

Three #5 Friends should do nicely. Bolts up top.

This is one of Vedauwoo's best offwidths! Super classic! It has a piss hard move about fifteen feet up, easier for the big-legged of us. Then it's basically textbook hand-fist stacking to the top, with good feet too. This is one of the few relatively straightforward stacking routes at Vedauwoo, once you pull the crux that is. I recommend an old #5 Camalot, a new #6 Camalot, and then 2 or so old #4.5 or new #5 Camalots. Apr 6, 2008
One #6 at the beginning plus two #5s for the middle is sufficient if you move the cams with you. Bring a #4 for the very top if you're faint of heart.... Apr 12, 2015

Spoiler Alert! Here is the key beta: Pull really f$%king hard, grunt a lot, repeat. Jun 16, 2016
