Start on thin chossy climbing to good jams. Jam out crack and do the exciting moves to mantle onto a small ledge. Follow crack/rail right to a large ledge (5.11a). It is probably good to plug a belay here, but it could be linked.

P2. Follow a set of cracks on interesting mixed face and crack climbing (5.10a).


This route is two routes right of Flake (5.8+) and is just right of the wide crack (Altar 5.10a). Look for an pretty hand crack that runs out. To get off, wrap on an chockstone slung with a gnarly, old cable.


A few nuts are good for the beginning and for the belay at the ledge. A typical Vedauwoo rack to #3 including small gear will suffice.

This is one of the coolest 5.11s in Vedauwoo I have tried. There is probably a static sequence, but I had to do a dyno from a mediocre hand jam on this route!

I remember this one being kind of hard a little bit heady (some friable rock). Even the 'easier' sections were kind of funky.

Yes, this climb might not be for the aspiring 5.10+ leader. Didn't want to put any beta in the route description, but here goes. The beginning moves are probably easy 5.10, but the protection is 1 nut (which is too low to protect you for very long), and the rock is crumbly until the first jams. Probably a good idea not to fall in the first 10-15' of this route.
