This is a great and pretty little line. Positive sequential fingers, good solid Vedauwoo 11-. One of the best short finger cracks in this grade range at Vedauwoo. May 13, 2007
I looked at this line for years and always thought it looked too short and dirty to be worth the effort. I was very wrong. Nice job, Bryan, I think this is one of my favorite finger cracks at Vedauwoo. It looks like the gear is going to suck, but there are bomber placements at all the right spots. Very fun climbing.

I agree, Handsome, it was too short and dirty for the effort. So I one-hung and claimed it. Nov 8, 2009

I had to huck from lock to lock. Needless to say, I didn't get it clean. The moves are hard, but the locks are really good (if far apart). Worth trying. Nov 20, 2009
I accidentally soloed this one time. Apr 22, 2015
