Description

This line really flows. The crux is probably climbing out of the narrowing chimney into the wide hand crack. Very aesthetic. The book gives it 10b, but my partner an I found Slash to be quite a bit harder. It's all so relative at Vedauwoo.

Location

Just right of Slash.

What standards would those be? Grades in Vedauwoo range from honest to completely sandbagged, and everything in between. As far as wide "standards" at Vedauwoo go, are we talking Jays Solo standards, or Maxilash standards? Jays solo is given 5.10, and Maxilash was originally given 5.10+, though I couldn't mistake the two because in my opinion Jays Solo is distinctly harder. While both may or may not be stiff when compared to 5.10's and 5.10+'s in other areas, to pretend that there is some sort of standard there is laughable. Sep 3, 2009

I may propose that Kelman's 10a is even a bit light by Vedauwoo wide standards. Sep 3, 2009

This route is 10a in Kelman's book, which I think is accurate. Sam's description is good. The upper wide hands crack is of high quality. Well worth the walk past Reynolds Hill. Apr 24, 2007
