Description

VH-1 is one of the best routes on Square Inch Wall, if not at the entire crag. Climb the beautiful hand crack to a ledge at a horizontal break (crux). Look for some good stopper placements along the way. At the break, step two feet to the right and continue up a second crack. Follow cracks left of the prominent roof to the top. Once above the level of the roof the climbing eases significantly.

Location

Located just left of Cooler Sacrifice. Look for a hand crack the ends at a horizontal break about 20 feet up, and then continues up two feet to the right.

Protection

Standard rack (emphasis on hand sized gear), 2 bolt anchor.

Sweet route. BETA Alert! Only thing I would say is that the description says to look for stopper placements at the start. For sure you can find nut placements here and there but this thing eats 0.4-1.0 cams with bomber placements pretty much the whole way through the first two tiers of cracks. Above that it is bigger pieces and the climbing is significantly easier. Its an awesome route, stick your hands in the crack and get on it! Aug 22, 2016

Awesome climb indeed. One thing to be aware of is that the two bolt anchor at the top doesn't have chains for the rappel links. There is instead some pretty old and faded webbing. At least one person backed up the webbing with a small piece of chordlet. Nov 10, 2009

Excellent climb, with a style that keeps you guessing most of the way up. Jul 17, 2008
