Description

This is a new Vedauwoo classic. It is a sixty degree overhanging splitter hand crack roof that leads to a gaping flared offwidth exit, which isn't too bad due to a big face hold to the left of the crack. Start sitting down on the first good hands at the bottom of the roof. There are many ways to do the end, so after you figure it out you can just keep playing around. This thing is really good.

This thing has now been dug out (in an unfortunately unsightly way, it looks like someone just took the incessant digging from dogs which I have many times seen chase annimals under there and dig for them, as inspiration to help the dogs dig a big dog hole) which extends the start a good two body lengths of big hand and fist crack climbing. This bumps the difficulty up a bit. I think V5 (12-) was an honest grade before, and I think the extension adds a grade. Again, this is a really good problem.

Location

Park as for the other problems and hike toward the obvious rocks. When you get to them head left a couple hundred yards and look to your right for the obvious roof.

Protection

A pad and a spotter can be nice for the lip.
