Description

This route epitomizes Vedauwoo. It is short, stout, diverse, and rewarding. Start on a ramp with no gear to a ledge. Place your first pieces, then stem 25 feet to the next ledge. Get some RPs and work out the thin technical moves (easily 11b) to the roof. Crank through the roof, fists to OW. A nice pitch that does not look so good from the ground.

Location

This is in between Second Iteration and Flake, and it starts with an obvious ramp.

Protection

RPs to #4.5 Camalot.

This route (FFA) was done in the summer of 1992 by Skip Harper and Greg Diamond. It is the more 'direct' line of the two associated (Crichton) routes. The attractive challenge is that it opens up as you proceed higher, from a nearly bottomed out thin crack to an ever-widening fist to OW finish which gets a tad strenuous and interesting to protect at the grade. Be sure to take at least a medium wide and a wider cam for the end. Jan 23, 2017
