This is the nice bulging wide splitter on the north side of John's Tower. This is a really good and beautiful route. The rock is really compact and the climbing interesting and fun. Rap bolts up top.

My funny Burning Man moment happened after first feeling good, then thrutching, then french-freeing the crux, then running out of gear for the top moves -- then finding a purple iPod shuffle next to the anchors. Great music on it, if a bit eclectic. That is about the dead last thing I would have expected to find on top of a Vedauwoo formation.
