Description [Suggest Change]

This route is BOSS and would be uber popular at areas like Little Si if it were transplanted. But, with the hike, I'm not sure it has been climbed more than a few times in its 15 year existence.

Steep rock leads up a clean face of varied and mostly positive holds through several baffling sequences. The Topout is CLASSIC. So GOOD.

Felt like 12b to me.

Jon, there is an unclimbed 11+ looking splitter crack on the right end of VVW that has your name on it! I was shocked it wasn't in the guide. Jul 5, 2015
that crack is not unclimbed, but was not included in the last guidebook. There is an anchor at the top. FA: Leland Aug 28, 2015

Thanks Kurt! I think I realized that after the fact; my exit 38 guide being the older version. Looks like a really nice line! Aug 28, 2015
