Start in a wide chimney that constricts as it goes in and up. You can choose to use offwidth technique, squeeze chimney technique, or wide chimney technique, depending on how deep you go into the crack. You can eventually gain a handjam constriction, then struggle your way to the top.


This is on the Plumb Line upper tier and is most easily accessed by climbing Plumb Line, scrambling up, then heading right. This is the first of 4 climbs on this side.


Bolted anchors. There is not much pro, but it is very safe with two #5s and one #6, plus some stuff in the #2, #3, #4 Camalot size.

If this is 5.11, it is the easiest 5.11 I have ever done at Vedauwoo. The spin move itself is pretty fun, but the climb, overall, is significantly easier than, say, Left Torpedo Tube, in my opinion.

Definitely the easiest "11b" I've done in the Voo. Easier than Burning Man and similar in difficulty and style to Vag of Honor. It's miles easier than Worm Drive or Big Pink, but those two routes are in a category of their own. Which grades are too high and which are too low, who's to say? Plenty fun nonetheless!
