This is a typical Vedauwoo 5.6. The route starts left of the tree and the roofs shown in the guidebook (Rock Climbing at Vedauwoo, Wyoming). You can see a beautiful but short open book, with parallel cracks at the left end of the wall. Climb the open book and move left to belay under a large roof with a tricky anchor. Note that in 2009, there was a DEATH rappel anchor set at the top (webbing around a hollow, small rock). If you don't want to die on this rappel, I suggest traversing into the small, "slabby," flaring chimney and continue moving right after this chimney to a second flaring, wide crack until you get to an obvious topout. Here you can head left into an arduous downclimb. Per Tyler Knaebel, there are now (September 2016) rap anchors to the right before the roof.
