This is a beautiful fifteen foot offwidth roof. Start inverted at the very far end of the cave and work your way out, stacking your way out to and over the lip, after which the crack thins all the way down to fingers. Find the way that fights you the least. This is a very elegant moving problem. One of the best problems in Vedauwoo, and one of the best offwidth problems anywhere.
This thing is way around the corner from MRC, baisically on the other side of the formation. To get there drive into Central and follow the signs to the "Beaver Pond" area or some other such name. Basically instead of turning left around the roundabout and heading down to the Gazeebo, continue straight and follow the road as it bends around, ending near the south east side of Old Easy. Park there by the bathroom. Looking up to the formation you will see a huge roof that faces south with some very large boulders under it. There is a thin aid seam splitting the left end of this roof and Desiderata is a couple hundred feet down from the wall, pretty much straigt in line with that seam. Desiderata generally faces west.
Per John L: there are 3 bats roosting in this crack in 2018.
