Bombay Hooker

V6, Boulder, 15 ft,  Avg: 4 from 11 votes
FA: Tracy Brandt
Wyoming > Vedauwoo > Old Easy
Access Issue: Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details

Description

Awesome crimping and balance problem with a cool jump move to get things started. Start left hand on a small divit/bump/crystal feature at about head height. Using any number of crumbly feet, jump up into the undercling jug where the nose connects to the boulder. A few crimpy moves up and left lead to a sloping dish on top.

Location

Follow the directions as for The Red Snapper. This problem is on the boulder with the giant nose described in those directions. Bombay Hooker is on the side facing away from the trail.

Protection

Two pads are nice, plus a spotter.

[Hide Comment] I should have said that this problem is massively height dependent. Anyone shorter than like 5' 10" or taller than 6' is most likely going to have a lot of trouble with different moves. Sep 3, 2009

[Hide Comment] I think aesthetically and kinetically this is one of the best lines in Vedauwoo at the grade. May 1, 2015
