The route follows a series of pin scars up very thin crack on a nice-sized boulder. Crux one is standing up, and crux two is finishing it. This is one of the most classic and obvious beginner lines in Vedauwoo.

A pad is useful, because the landing is rocky.

This is probably a little harder than V3 if you do it in hiking boots, as it was most likely done by John Gill originally.
