Description

This is a really fun and technical crack! Start on the obvious and heavily chalked undercling at the back of the cave and move out the roof using ever thinner jams. The crux revolves around a sequence of first knuckle locks. After establishing yourself over the lip, climb back down a move or two and step back down to the ground. This crack is very sequential, the moves are interesting, and the rock is quality. I would recommend this one to anyone looking to tick Vedauwoos hard boulder problems. A bit of an eliminate, the flake system about a foot and a half to the left of the crack is off for both hands and feet, though the obvious flake handhold which touches the crack right at the lip is on.

Location

On the same wall as Spectreman, this is the next crack system to the right of The Rookie.

Protection

A thin pad for under the crux is nice.

Nice work, Justin! I always wondered if that line would get done. Aug 12, 2010
