If the Beef Eater is too much, at least eat your veggies.

Crimp the edges (that's right, Voo slab isn't all pebble pinches or friction). It is protected by 3 bolts + anchors and is on the boulder directly in front of Beef Eater. Clipping the anchors is a little reachy if you're under 5 feet 6 inches.


This route is on the boulder on the north side of the Holdout, offering easy (just climb 5.8+) Go Pro shots of Beef Eater.


5 draws.

I found an old rusty button-head on top, so I was unsure of FA. 3 stars? ;-)

8+ ?

Nice route, Justin! It is amazing that there are solid edges going all the way up this thing. Very consistent.

No way could this route pass as an 8+ unless Smeenk and I missed something. It felt like a 10 to me with the last move being quite difficult. I know things around Vedauwoo are sandbagged, but this would be a bit unfair for a 5.8 climber. Regardless, it is a pretty sweet route and deserves more traffic. I am curious to see the consensus on the grade considering I'm not much of a sport climber.

Glad you liked the route! Thought it was a natural line waiting for a little pro. I had done some other 9 slabs in the Voo (proper, not Beehive) and thought this felt more solid, but perhaps because while figuring where the bolts should go, I did each move 100 times. Thanks.
