Description 

This is the best sport route that I have done in the Vedauwoo area, without a doubt!

Start off with some 5.10 moves on good holds until just after the 3rd bolt - then it gets difficult and dicey all the way to the anchors. It may be a bit hard for the grade? Anyway, I thought it was fun but tough.

Beautiful stone! It is fine-grained, with nice features and spackled with brilliant green-yellow lichen.

Location 

On the back side of the Roof Ranch, walk past The Sparkling Touch and keep going to the really brilliant colored rust-green-yellow wall. There are two sport routes here - the left line is 7 Delusions (12b). The right line is The Rusty Trombone (12a).

Protection 

7 bolts to anchors.

This route felt challenging at 12a to me as well, though I was very tired when I tried it. Great line, this is definitely one of the coolest bolted lines in Vedauwoo. Was this done on gear originally? Seems like it could have gone on gear, but would have been very exciting in the crux, to say the least.
