Wegetables is in Sleepy Hollow, at the very far end of the Trapps. Approach by heading straight into the Hollow where the carriage road U-turns right, wandering into the woods for 5 minutes, then heading left up to the cliff. Look for a short-ish wall with a big left-facing corner; Wegetables is left of that, and easily identified by the three overhangs at its top.

Start at a colorful face with a crack, capped by a set of three overhangs.

Follow the thin crack up to a stance, or start by climbing a short corner system just right of this, and then face climb out left and up to a good stance. From the stance, follow a crack and flakes over two overhangs to a final roof and a ledge and a bolted anchor that is ten feet above.


Small camming units and nuts for the lower crux, a few small to medium cams for the roof system.

In a week long trip that I did to the Gunks this was my favorite route. Wegetables has two distinctly different cruxes, solid pro through the roofs, and engaging climbing through out it's entirety. No pulling a crux roof and cruising 5.3 the rest of the way. This climb is full value. Mar 27, 2010
The opening moves of this climb before the high step to the flake can be protected with a green black diamond c3 and green wild country micronut. Jun 1, 2010

Though the rest of the climb's protection is straightforward, gear at the bottom is very thin and difficult to get. Found a #2 peanut, #2 HB brassy real low in the crack, with a #4 BD stopper a little higher up. A 0 TCU is too big. Ballnuts would help. There's a stance to work for this gear from. Good climb other than the tricky gear low. Aug 15, 2010

This route is really height-dependent, if you are tall and lanky its pretty mellow. As everybody has said the gear down low isn't ideal, but the gear afterwards is great. Sep 16, 2010
I led this today for the first time in many years. It was as fun as I had remembered. The gear down low isn't really that bad . You can get a good micro nut in the thin seam while still on great holds. Then after doing one more move you get a bomber cam or nut placement up to the right. I used a green alien today, but if I remember corrrectly a good nut goes there is well. Either placement is bomber. From there the gear is G. Jul 16, 2011

the opening moves are pretty safe with a good spot, as well. if your belayer stands on top of the block near the base, their hands are at your knees when you start that sequence. Sep 2, 2011
Straightforward to set up a top-rope on Tennish Anyone (10c with some interesting moves) after doing Wegetables. May 15, 2013

This climb is "G" if you have small wires and micro C3s(or equivalent) to protect the first 10 or 15 ft. After that the climbing is a straightforward but pumpy romp. Too bad you don't have to use the crack more, the one necessary finger-lock is indeed memorable! May 29, 2013

I placed a ballnut at the opening crux, downclimbed, and did a bounce test and it popped right out despite it being a good placement. Be weary of the ballnut on this climb! Found a nut and microcam to be the best on the bounce. Otherwise, amazing climb! Oct 21, 2013

There is a good TR about 10' right of Wegetables that's fun to mess around on May 27, 2014

I climbed this today, and I found a solid red x4, green c3, and a small stopper to protect the initial high step.

Also, the spot where you put the green c3 has what looks like epoxy to reinforce the crack.

Once you get above the high step, the gear is G. Sep 27, 2015
