Location: WY : Vedauwoo : Walt's Wall : Edward's Crack (5.7)

Comments: Did this route in 1 pitch with a 60 meter rope. I slid gear up the crack for 10+ feet in a few places to save gear. There is a great belay at the top. The only 5.7 on the route was at the very start and at the small roof... but this was also my first route at Vedauwoo.

Comments: This is a really fun route if you're solid at 5.10. The start is hard but definitely felt like the crux to me.

Comments: This is a great TR. The anchor at the top takes a couple of nuts and a #1 Camalot.

Comments: Fun route! It is possible to do this route in 2 pitches if you go past the tree at the usual P1 belay and keep running to the crack systems at the diagonal about 1/2 way from the tree up to the roof. If I recall correctly the belay took a hand size cam upside down under a flake (#1 or #2 Camalot) and a couple of nuts. We did this with a 60 meter rope, and there was snow on the ground so our starting point was maybe 3 or 4 meters above the ground proper. 1 belay instead of 2 = fas... more >>

Comments: Nice 5.9. Many bolts for the length of the climb. This is nice considering that the rock may not be 100% bomber in places. Fun route that I'm sure I'll climb many times in the future. Good warmup for the 5.10 and 5.11 climbs nearby.

Comments: Pumpy 5.10 for sure!! The rock is pretty good and this is a fun route. Worth the trip across the Poudre.

Comments: This route is fantastic!! I dumped half a set of pee-nuts into the crux pitch along with small cams. Well protected, aesthetic, beautiful route.
