Description

Zach Orenczak says: "Start: below a large downward-pointed tooth. Climb up to the base of the tooth and traverse out its left side. Hands to fist."
Sam Benedict Says: Climb a dirty chimney to a left angled overhanging hand to fist crack, move quickly through this section as it is strenuous and painful. The crux is pulling out from under this “tooth” and into the vertical fist crack. Climb the comparatively chill fist crack as it gradually becomes an even chiller off-with. Scramble of right to the anchors at the top of “Bad Girl’s Dream”.

Location

2 or three climbs left of Bad Girls Dream. An obvious line.

Protection

Doubles in #1-3. A #3.5, 4 and maybe a 5 would be nice for the top. Belay the second from the anchor as lowering would suck gear under the tooth.

I recommend the 2nd pitch too, do it in combo with the first for one exciting, rope gnawing festival! Woo!!!! Sep 19, 2012

Just to clarify, Slash is the leftmost line in the left alcove. It is easily distinguished by the short roofy bulge. Good job Sam! Jul 26, 2006

This was my second 5.10 lead and maybe my proudest climb yet. A classic blue-collar line. This was also one of my first bare-handed climbs at Vedauwoo; there was blood on everything! Jul 26, 2006
