Trying to avoid putting my hands in the giant pile...

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


This is a pretty wild route, and it will keep your attention from the start. Begin the route slightly left of the wide crack, and traverse back right when you can. The crack gets progressively wider as you get closer to the ceiling that forms a T. Boldly head straight left on horizontal crack with wide hands and less than ideal feet (heel hooking helpful). The only thing that detracts from this route is large amounts of bat poop at the traverse, luckily you can avoid it with a little care. Pretty unique route for Veedauwoo, hop on it if you are in the area!


The route is located on the north face of the south prong of the horseshoe forming the Plumb Line crag (just right of route Infusion). It is very obvious when looking south from Plumb Line route.

Descent: downclimb the chimney that is left of the route.


Standard rack, with #4.5 and #5 Camalots, and a #4 Bigbro is helpful.

Great route! Really fun! Bat poop is fairly localized for one move. Can protect pretty well with a #6 if you're okay with climbing in chimneys without pro. Need to do a gap jump to walk off.

Does anyone know what the roof crack around to the right of this is called and what it goes at? Looks rad! Bolted anchors on the face.

Fun route with great exposure. The giant pile of bat droppings at the top of the chimney does affect the quality of the route. Tricky getting around the pile.
