This is a very cool photo! You can see the tension in the climber, the crack is cool, and the stuff in the foreground adds to it.

I think I'd be looking for a spot not a belay.

The landing really sucks for that. While I'm sure it has been soloed, I don't know that anyone has bothered with spotters or pads for that.

I think Ed meant he would want a spot until he was high enough off the rocks for a belay to do anything. This guys just chilling with his head down....

Thanks, Peter! I have sweaty hands....
I just read the other comments. It has only been climbed a handful of times, and I don't know anyone who has bouldered it out. You certainly could, but what you can't see in the photo is that Bob has to sit on a rock, because there is a cave beneath us, basically. So, I actually started the route below where he is belaying. It is a fun finger crack, so give it a shot! If anyone does boulder it or free solo it, I would be psyched to know!

If anyone has soloed it, I would bet on Mark Jenkins. I think he has soloed everything I led at Vedauwoo.

That type of landing is pretty common.
