Description

If the Beef Eater is too much, at least eat your veggies.

Crimp the edges (that's right, Voo slab isn't all pebble pinches or friction). It is protected by 3 bolts + anchors and is on the boulder directly in front of Beef Eater. Clipping the anchors is a little reachy if you're under 5 feet 6 inches.

Location

This route is on the boulder on the north side of the Holdout, offering easy (just climb 5.8+) Go Pro shots of Beef Eater.

Protection

5 draws.

I found an old rusty button-head on top, so I was unsure of FA. 3 stars? ;-)

Nice route, Justin! It is amazing that there are solid edges going all the way up this thing. Very consistent. Jun 23, 2014

No way could this route pass as an 8+ unless Smeenk and I missed something. It felt like a 10 to me with the last move being quite difficult. I know things around Vedauwoo are sandbagged, but this would be a bit unfair for a 5.8 climber. Regardless, it is a pretty sweet route and deserves more traffic. I am curious to see the consensus on the grade considering I'm not much of a sport climber. Jul 26, 2015

Glad you liked the route! Thought it was a natural line waiting for a little pro. I had done some other 9 slabs in the Voo (proper, not Beehive) and thought this felt more solid, but perhaps because while figuring where the bolts should go, I did each move 100 times. Thanks. Oct 9, 2015
