Description

At first glance, this seems like a squeeze job, but it was very enjoyable slab climbing. Start on Cornelius, but instead of following the crack up right, reach high for the first bolt. The squeamish might want a yellow Alien (or similarly-sized piece) to reach the first bolt. This tiny line packs in a ton of fun and engaging slab climbing before the anchor. The crux is making the 2nd clip. It is not too hard, but if you blew it, you might hit the ground....

Location

This is the slab in-between Easy Jam and Cornelius.

Protection

3 bolts and an anchor without rings.

Walk off or clean it from the shuts above Cornelius.

We put this route up with the intention of adding another moderate route to an area that has become a teaching alcove. Fun climbing! Sep 7, 2012

Thanks. At first glance didn't look like too much, but when I got on it, it had some nice climbing and very good practice for friction. It was a bit dusky when I led it, so it was hard to see features, but I guessed it to be around 5.8+ to 5.9. Harder than it looked! Fun and does make a nice addition. You can make the route a little easier by going left near the start of the face, but what fun would that be! Sep 7, 2013

Nice! A good way to find out that little pebbly footholds really stick at Vedauwoo. Sep 8, 2013
